Everyone asks if I am a knitter. . . I do knit, but I’ve never actually finished anything! I get easily distracted and enticed by the next project or hobby. I’ve started to knit more scarves than I can count. But when I finished the rough draft for this book, I thought I’d better try knitting again to make sure I got things right. I researched how to knit a sock from the toe-up (many socks are knit from the top down which wouldn’t work for my story!) and started knitting my own long sock! It’s now about 9 feet long and still going!
Since I started knitting it when I was submitting the rough draft to publishers, it is a good visual example of how long it takes to make a book. I take it to schools and book readings and show the kids how long it was at each part of the publishing process.
