It's Official!

It's official! The book is out! You can order it from Interweave and get it soon, soon, soon. If you ordered from Amazon, it will take longer, they tell me another month, but you saved enough dough to make the wait bearable.

I am now wishing I hadn't ordered it from Amazon, waiting just ain't fair. May pick it up first time I see it and then cancel Amazon order.

Any chance you can change the synopsis on your book at Amazon so that your knitter is not referred to as 'her' as in 'any knitter to easily adapt sweater patterns to her own measurements'. Thanks

This is for Nigel:

I was overjoyed to hear that there are many men knitters, in fact a force of them!

The following is the book description I got off of amazon.com...probably the american version, since I live in America...and it is completely sexless. Please copy the description off the British version of amazon and let's compare notes. Perhaps the version you saw isn't Interweave's official synopsis.

straight from the horse's mouth.

Book Description

Adapting basic sweater patterns for personal preferences and measurements is the focus of this step-by-step guidebook that helps knitters refashion knitting schematics. The designs, illustrations, and photos demonstrate how to adjust patterns to different styles so that any knitter can customize sweater patterns into unique creations. Challenging projects—ranging from sweaters and vests to pullovers and jackets—and easy-to-follow instructions illustrate the basic elements of sweater design to inspire knitters at all levels. Learning how to fit the bodice; change yarns, proportions, neckline styles, sleeve length, and color and stitch patterns; and add collars and edgings will give knitters the confidence to alter any pattern to meet their needs.
