  1. Stefanie,
    What happened with the book “Top Down Knits: Knitwear Design From Concept to Finished Garments”? That book came and went in a New York minute!! I can’t believe that I missed it. Are there any plans to have it printed with another publisher?

  2. It was cancelled by the initial publisher, but I am working with another publisher to release it in the next year or so.
