Little Crochet Book Trailer!
In case you hadn’t noticed, I am *really* excited about my next book, Little Crochet: Modern Designs for Babies and Toddlers,due on shelves April 5th. My publisher suggested that I make a book trailer, and although my gut reaction was “I don’t know how to do that!” I decided to give it a try anyway. After lots of brainstorming I decided that I would go for a stop-motion animation film, because if there’s one thing I can do, it’s repeat a process hundreds of times in order to come up with a finished project. (Thank you, crochet and knitting, for teaching me that patience). With some careful tweaking and several curse words aimed at my video software, I came up with this:
I took about 300 photos in order to make this short trailer, which just got posted on the book’s Amazon page. So, even though Little Crochet doesn’t come out until April, I thought I would share the trailer with you now that it’s out in the world. The film will give you a good idea of what you’ll find inside: over 24 projects including clothing, blankets, toys, accessories and nursery items. Whether you like quick projects or big heirloom-y projects, I think you’ll find a good number of patterns to enjoy.
If you frequent a local yarn shop, please ask them to order some copies. And if you are coming to the Dallas Fort Worth Fiber Festival, I’ll be doing a signing there on Friday night (April 8) and another sometime on Saturday (more info to come). I’ll have some books to purchase or feel free to bring your own. (Shameless plug: there is still plenty of room in my Swatch Savvy class!). Oh, and San Antonians, please mark your calendars for April 13th, when I have a trunk show/book signing at Yarnivore.
I’m looking forward to sharing more of the projects and inspiration with you as we get closer to the release date. Have I already shared the heart-attack-inducing story of how half of the projects were nearly lost before they were photographed? If not, I’ll share that too. I can’t wait to hear which projects are your favorites, and see your little crochet popping up on Ravelry!
