Well, almost 18 months from starting it, Hook, Stitch & Give is out in the UK today!!
I really hope you love it and I hope that you find things to make for people you love, because giving handmade is just the best. You can buy the book at most book retailers or here for a signed copy!
(and don't worry, North Americans! The US version of HS&G is out on the 9th of December!)
