Service Description

As well as the skills listed above, I've self-published three collaborative knitting books (8, 16, and 22 co-authors respectively). Perhaps surprisingly, knitting is a technical field - this is because poorly written instructions mean that a lovingly knit baby hat is so huge that would fit a baby elephant instead of your sister's newborn child!
For each of these books, I took the process from my original concept (book 3 title "50 socks - 50 states") through the various steps of gathering contributors, arranging industry support; establishing schedules; collecting samples; working with skilled photographer; editing patterns & text line-by-line; finalizing; & sending out the final product, enjoying every step along the way.
