My new favorite book is The Knitgrrl Guide to Professional Knitwear Design and I am not even specifically a knitwear designer! I just got this book earlier this week and I’m more than half way through it. I’ve picked up so many tips about doing business, social media, contracts and advertising I can’t wait to finish reading the rest. After the second chapter I got up and joined twitter as Handwerksyarn (just have to think of interesting things to tweet now!).
Sometimes a book just hits the spot and this one is doing it for me. I’d recommend it to anyone doing any sort of business in the textile/yarn/knitting world. It has great information and is an accessable fun read.
