I’m psyched to announce that my book: Cast Iron, Cast On: cooking and knitting through the seasons is available on Amazon now! If you just want the ebook I recommend Ravelry – and it’s available there too!
Makers are just that: inspired to make things, whatever they may be! Calley Hastings (co-owner of Fat Toad Farm, a goat dairy specializing in goat milk caramel) and Becky Herrick (knitwear designer) both live in Vermont, where they create fantastic handmade items from the local bounty. Be it local wool or local milk, stylish wearables or delicious edibles, this talented duo will show you how to cook and create through all the seasons of the year.
Both authors find equal satisfaction in baking or knitting a housewarming gift. When a loved one needs comfort they might knit a hat, or show up with a loaf of homemade bread. Let Becky and Calley guide you through a year of their patterns and recipes.
The book includes 16 patterns and more than 20 recipes all organized around our seasonal theme and all featuring some of our favorite yarns and ingredients. I hope you’ll check it out, ask your LYS to carry it, and your local library to pick up a copy!
If you’re on Ravelry please pop over to my November Knit Along, or the mirror one in the Peace Fleece group! Our November prizes have been announced and (I may be biased) but I think they’re pretty awesome! There’s yarn, more yarn, Fat Toad Farm caramel sauce, and some of my indie patterns too!
