Welcome to the third stop of the blog tour for the fantastic Crafty Detour CSI sock book! I have been fortunate to be involved with this project on more than one level – as a test knitter, as a tech editor for the patterns, and for the last sock in the book, yarn dyer! I was more than thrilled to host my dear friend Heather on a blog tour So without further ado, let’s get to the interview!
What are your future hopes and dreams for your designing career?
Pie in the sky: I would love to author a book published by someone other than myself, go on a book signing tour, and be invited to teach at all the major fiber arts events. Realistically: I would like to become a designer that people remember. For example, a knitter wants to start a shawl pattern and says something like, “Hey, I have this awesome pattern in my queue by Heather Zoppetti, maybe I should cast on for that…” Maybe they do and maybe they don’t, but at least I wasn’t forgotten. Is that selfish?
What is your favorite type of item to design?
How did you come up with the crimes for the patterns?
Any tips for people looking to start designing?
You used a variety of yarns in these patterns, which was your favorite to work with?
Thank you for hosting me!
Thanks for allowing me to host a spot on the tour! Something to keep in mind everyone, is that the e-book is currently priced at $20 with each pattern being available individually for $3. However, in June the prices will increase to $28 for the e-book and $4 for an individual pattern.
Now for the give-away! Heather has graciously given me a copy of the e-book to give away to a lucky commenter. But I’m going to sweeten the deal. Since Stitches ‘n Rows was able to supply yarn for one of the designs (Bobbie Strow) I’m going to throw in a skein of the “I Can’t believe it’s not…” colorway that Heather requested and named! All you need to do is leave a comment by midnight EST on Monday May 23, 2011 – tell me your favorite pattern in the e-book – and I’ll draw a winner at random. Make sure you leave a way for me to contact you!
