Drum roll, please...

Word on the street is that this Friday, April 5, is the offical release date for What (else) Would Madame Defarge Knit?!!  Woot!

For those of you who haven't seen our multiple posts on the subject, Cassandra and I have a pattern in this book - which will make us official, published knitwear designers, once the book is released. It's been a crazy, fun, and challenging effort and we're really proud to have worked with Heather Ordover and the folks at Cooperative Press. (On the QT: we've had two more designs accepted for the next book in the WWMDFK? series as well! I'm starting to feel slightly "professional" at this crafting thing now.)

The publicity for the book has included a regular e-newsletter from Heather that includes mini-interviews with the book's contributors as well as free patterns. Just in case you're not on the email distribution, here are links to each (our interview is in "Sneak Peek 5"):

If you're interested in signing up for the newsletter, click here.

For fans of Facebook, you can get all this and more at the WWMDFK? Facebook page.

And, of course, if you're a Raveler (which I'm sure all our knitting friends are!), you can see pics of some of the patterns and more at the WWMDFK? Ravelry page.

Finally, there's the absolutely offical (and full of awesome information, pics, bios, etc) WWMDFK? website!

Needless to say, I hope that everyone decides to buy the book. :)  But, just in case you need added incentive, everyone who pre-orders or orders during the first 24 hours of being published (beginning noon, Pacific time on Friday, 4//5) will receive additional freebies. I don't know what those consist of but I'm sure they'll be pretty awesome.

If we haven't said it enough, Cassandra and I are exceedingly grateful for the support of our Mighty Distractible friends. We can't thank you enough for sticking with us as we take this crafty journey and we hope you continue to enjoy the "work" we're doing.

- Alex
