Sneak Peek

In the elder days of Art
Builders wrought with greatest care
Each minute and unseen part,
For the Gods see everywhere.

Longfellow must have, had to have, knit Fair Isle.


There has been some curiosity, lately, as to if/when patterns will be published for the things you see in progress on the site. I think it's safe to say that one way or another, sooner or later, they'll all be available - some of them, like the sock patterns and some sweaters, will be self-published, some are magazine projects, and others will be saved for the book.

I promise, I'm not trying to be infuriatingly vague on purpose! It's just that things are so hectic, and I swear, knitting isn't the only thing going on in my life :) Someday, someday.


I'm content with knowing that they'll be available evetually, in any way, shape or form.

In the meantime, I'll continue being inspired by everything you do.

Best wishes on all your forthcoming publishing-projects!

I'll be patient, I promise. ;-) If I start getting impatient (especially for the Norwegian jacket!) I will just go to the closet, look at the bins of yarn and patterns waiting their turn, and repeat 100 times, "I have plenty of projects."

Would it be asking too much to tell us ( without details of course ! ) for example that the Oatmeal and Blue jacket (or the brocade jacket ) let's say will not come out till a certain time...or not in the near future.
I have set funds aside and am investigating yarns for either one of those projects and have been holding back on big projects for this reason.
I am not trying to pressure you at all....I understand how unbelievably busy you must be......but also would be happy to know,if I can start something more involved....especially since I am a one-project-at-a-time knitter.....

Hugs.....and Thanks....

Really? You have a life outside of knitting? I'm shocked! The sneak peak is wonderful and the pattern will be worth the wait - no matter how long.

Congrats on the recognition you are so deservingly getting!

I like the colors of that tantalizing photo.

Fair Isle has recently consumed me, to the point that every project I envision is chock full of it. It's just that sort of addictive technique.

Whatever that Fair Isle's going to be, I love the colors!

It says nice things about your design skills that there's such demand for the patterns. :)

Longfellow says that it's only the old craftsmen who built for the Gods. You prove him wrong again and again.

Given that there is more going on in your life than just knitting, I am speechless at the amount of knitting you accomplish. I wait with patience.

it's true, it is difficult to wait, but that's only because your patterns are so beautiful. Promise to tell us as soon as you know more about the magazine and book stuff.

I will wait patiently. Just keep us informed!

"Someday" is good enough for me. My time is tied up for the next, oh, ten years.

Take your time.....

Although we'd all love for everything to be free to us, your readers, I think we all understand pretty well that you're simply keeping your options open. Me? I'm just thankful you share pictures!

I'll be a good little Otter and wait nicely. ;)

Oh and I just saw your mention in the recent Interweave Knits. Congrats on being fabulous! :D

my grandma always said that a mark of a gifted knitter is the WS of the work-
yours is perfect!

Hopefully we'll get at them sooner rather than later!!

There's more to life than knitting?

Surely you jest.

Don't forget to enjoy the other things, too, peach. Time and tides...

I know you are super busy, but I must ask again that you don't forget us plus-sized knitters when you design the garments for your book(s). If you're worried about it not being as successful because of plus-sizes, I promise if you include bigger sizes, we'll snatch it up! Look at "Big Girl Knits," it was #88 in total sales its' opening day on Amazon, and that was ALL non-fiction, not just knitting books! If you need a zaftig test knitter, I'm your gal.

As long as I know the patterns will be available eventually, I can definitely wait and not harass you too much! :-)

Words, words, words. Go take a shower, perfume girl!

Thanks Eunny, that is such good news about your patterns being available eventually. I personally see them being in a beautifully designed book with exquisite photographs. I personally think that would do justice to them, and it would be so nice to have them all together in print, even the one's you already sell. You would take your rightful place as one of the great designers that are around today.
Please don't be shy about telling us all when your next publications are available, we'll be welcoming the news with open arms.
I wish knitting was your full-time job Eunny, then we'd all get the benefit of your wonderful creations.
I do like the way you've shown us the wrong side of your sweater, it's beautiful, and a great idea to show 'behind the scenes'!
Take care Eunny.

Can't wait to see the fairisle. I have a feeling that your book will be phenomenal.

I'm personally waiting for the appearance of that incredible cabled-waist top. That peak at the bust completely trips my trigger.

Nice spinning with you midge!!! See... there is more to life than knitting (AMIE!)

The longer you hold out, the more valuable they become. People will be clammoring to get your book!

Someday works for me. Gives me time to get my technical skills up to snuff! :)

Wow. I'm commenting up here at the top but I'm wow-ing about that cabled top you are knitting, and those cabled socks...

It was nice to meet the person behind all these talents last Friday! Can't wait to get my hands on these patterns!

These look like the May 23rd colors from the "Torrent" post. I can't wait to see what you're making. I have a loaner copy of Alice Starmore's Fair Isle book and I'm planning another colorwork sweater. Fun, fun, fun! Hopefully finances and time will cooperate and I'll get to attend the May 2007 cruise, I'm dying to meet you, Mama-e and everyone else from back yonder. Happy 4th of July!

I am content for "The Gods" to "see everywhere" in your work. To know everything by having all the patterns would be like the magician telling all his secrets. However, one does have to make a living and a book of photos of your work and works-in-progress would be lovely and mysterious without even trying.
