Learn about Shannon Okey and the Cooperative Press

Better known as Knitgrrl, Shannon Okey is a wonderfully creative designer and author who has joined with others to join a cooperative publishing company. It's a great idea because it gives them better control over their publications -- many of which you'll want to add to your library.

Shannon's newest book, Knitgrrl Guide to Professional Knitwear Design, is a brilliant idea and I'd recommend it for any knitter who'd like to have her designs published. (This includes all you TKGA Members who enter our annual $1000 Design Contest!) Be sure to keep an eye out for it.

Watch this latest episode of Let's Knit2Gether and see what Shannon's been working on lately. I loved the shawl that had both felted and non-felted Cascade yarns in the same colors. What a clever effect!

Be sure to watch to the end of the video so you'll see how you can win some of CAT's own stash of Cherry Tree Hill Suri Laceweight yarn.

My UFO is still unfinished but I do get it out several times a year and do many rows. It is a sweater and I would love to have it done and wearable.

Thank you, Deborah!

That way, you'll be entered into the contest for Cherry Hill yarn. Good luck!
