While you wait, knit this hat

Deadlines come and they go.
What's truly important is quality work.

At Decadent Publishing ( I fortunate to work with a team of talented editors. Together, we have polished The Sweater Curse and now it shines. I'm so very proud of it.

I can't wait until you'll be able to read it. Soon that day will come.

To help us wait, here's a free toque pattern...
