It seems like indie publishing is where it's at right now - some of my favorite collections have been self-published (or are slated to be self-published, pending their crowdfunding campaigns). I love that designers are taking it upon themselves to make the projects they want to make and overseeing all aspects of the process to fully realize that creative vision. It's a lot of work from start to finish, and seeing it turn out so well is always exciting.
For WEEKEND, I was fortunate to play a small role in helping it take shape - I was the tech editor for several of the designs. At the time, the concept of a book seemed really esoteric to me, and seeing the finished result of all of Jen's hard work (and her photographer friends Joelle Blanchard, Geof Fischer and Joey Leaming) is really incredible.
Aside from that, I am just really excited as a knitter to have an entire book of wearable patterns that can be knit up quickly, just in time for the return of cooler temperatures - most can be made in just one weekend!
You can visit Jen's website to purchase hard copies of the book (which includes a free e-book copy); WEEKEND is also available as individual pattern downloads and PDF ebook here on Ravelry, or you can snag it on Amazon.
