Hope that you are all having a lovely weekend! My plans mostly revolve around avoiding housework with more sample knitting and skiing.

Hi Nicole,

What’s the biggest knitting project you’ve ever undertaken? Have you ever tried knitting hats? Maybe even 10,000 of them?

I was wondering if you’d be interested in reading and reviewing a book by a fellow knitter, Robyn Devine from SheMakesHats.com, entitled She Makes Hats.

Moved by creative planning and life challenges, Robyn Devine found meaning in her life by . . . knitting hats?

She Makes Hats is one woman's story of finding meaning, purpose, and passion by way of an old-fashioned yet rediscovered craft. With a push from a friend, Robyn Devine, a thirty-something wife and mother, moved past her apprehension and began expressing herself through texture, color, and design, turning knitting into her hobby, her meditation, and a functional product that helps people all around the world.

Now, in an effort to knit 10,000 hats for people all around the world, Robyn contributes to a number of programs, aiding sick children, traveling artists, and newborns in other countries. Knitting remains a steadfast companion and leaves her blessed with worldwide friends, support, and the encouragement to continue her mission: to bring comfort, warmth, and the “sweet spot” fit of a knit hat to everyone.

Robyn lives in Omaha, Nebraska with her husband, toddler son, and their three cats. When she’s not knitting, she can be found reading and eating pizza. Usually at the same time. She shares her knitting at SheMakesHats.com

She Makes Hats is being published by Asymmetrical Press, a publishing house in Missoula, Montana run by indie authors, for indie authors—publishing for the indie at heart.

May I send you a copy of She Makes Hats to review? It’s available in EPUB, Kindle, and PDF. If you’d like, you can also run a free e-copy giveaway, whether or not you choose to review the book. Please contact me at rosalie@asymmetrical.co if you are interested.

Thank you for your time.

This is really nice.
I really like the simplicity of the design, and the colour is pretty too.
