A cool new ebook: Game Knitting

06 Oct 2009

I never get tired of seeing cool, crafty self-publishing. The ever-talented Lee Meredith has just released her first long-format ebook, Game Knitting. It's a super-cool concept. As she describes it:

"If you love both knitting and playing games, maybe you've wished you could somehow do both at the same time. Sure, you can knit a few rows while waiting for a Scrabble player to figure out their move, but it's a bit trickier to work your needles and hold a hand of cards simultaneously. Well now here's a way you can not just play and knit, but turn your knitting itself into the game! And create a truly one-of-a-kind knit object in the process, defined by the randomness of its design."

The ebook covers the concept of Game Knitting in detail, and then offers up enough patterns to make over 150 different designs.

As always, Lee's included gorgeous photography. And on her website, a smart little preview, so you can get a glimpse of each and every page. You can even read all about Game Knitting before you buy the book.

Such a great concept! A traditional publisher would have been hard-pressed, I think, to publish something this unusual. But what a perfect opportunity for an ebook!

Check it out at Lee's blog.
