It's a Wrap


The expression "it's a wrap" was coined in the film industry. A scene may be shot once or reshot several times. Once the director is satisfied with the results, the shooting is over, and -- it's a wrap. I use the expression here as the title of the closing article of the newsletter. But I also use it now to describe what it feels like to finally hold a copy of my new book in my hands.

My friend Dorothy and I worked together for many hours and well over a year to collect, write about and knit samples for the techniques presented in the book. We did many takes -- adding something here, cutting something there -- before we were satisfied. And when we were finally finished and ready to submit the manuscript, we both put our index fingers on the "send" button and said, "It's a wrap!"

Knitting Know-How: Techniques, Lessons and Projects for Every Knitter's Library is filled with tips and techniques that we've collected during our combined 100+ years of knitting and 50+ years of teaching experience.

Knit on!
