Fellow Visionary Author Hunter Hammersen is a book-producing machine! On the heels of Silk Road Socks, she indie published Knitter’s Curiosity Cabinet (for which my sister did an illustration), Hunter just published a new mini book, Rabble Rousers: What to Knit When You’re Up to No Good. I love the title of her latest project, it excites my inner rebel!
All the projects in the book are quick-knit accessories that are interesting to knit, but at the same time mindless and non-boring. I’m a bit jealous of her clever title and the fun and themed names she chose for the designs. All the designs are simple quick-knits and most of them can be unisex items, so perfect for any last-minute or quick gift knitting. The design and layout of the book is clean, modern and easy to read. I also really like the photography and the simple but interesting backgrounds. The use of an edgy-looking model also fits within the theme of the book without being an in-your-face statement. Furthermore, the size of the book makes it easy to tuck into just about any bag or purse.

P.S. Have you seen the new e-zine, Skein Theory? It’s premier issue was released yesterday. I have 6 designs in it! In a couple of weeks, I’ll be posting about the experience in and process of designing for this wonderful new magazine by Janel Laidman, author of The Enchanted Sole and The Eclectic Sole, and editor of the sister e-zine The Sock Report, all published through her publication company, Rustling Leaf Press.
