My copy of Yarnbombing arrived! I was so surprised to see it in the mailbox. Surprised but happy - I had heard that the first copies were available but I thought I would have to wait until October to see mine. Not so.
Thank you Leanne and Mandy!
The Knitted Mile gets a nod - with pictures - in the section about figuring out how much yarn you will need (the book is as much a document of past projects as it is a DIY guide). This cracks me up because of the number of times TKM project sent me scrambling for more and more and yet more yarn. Guess I could of used this book!
But the photos look fabulous. Indeed, the whole book is beautiful and energetic and, no doubt, will inspire many more to cover the world in knitwear.
----edited to add-----
Now that I have had a better chance to look at the book more thoroughly, I see that TKM isn't exactly in a section on calculating yardage, but section on letting your imagination run wild, which is actually nicer. Also, they misspelled my name in a couple of places....sigh....maybe it will be corrected when the second edition comes out!
