Announcing... Green Gables Knits!

by Joanna

We are very pleased to announce... Green Gables Knits!

This past fall, I approached the Heirs of L. M. Montgomery about my little book idea, and was simply thrilled to hear that they were interested in arranging an agreement with us, allowing us to create and publish it. I am an unabashed fan of Anne Shirley, and have been dreaming of this book for years!

The book will contain knitting patterns for garments and accessories for teens, women and men. Each pattern is accompanied by a quote from the book, along with a series of Lucy Maud Montgomery's personal photographs from Prince Edward Island.

We have set a publication date of November, 2013, and dearly look forward to sharing more of this book with you as the months progress!
