Plot Driven Steampunk Knitting Book on Kickstarter

The Ladies of Mischief hope to raise more than $4,000 on Kickstarter to produce a unique book blending the steampunk novel with knitting patterns. Above, we’ve embedded a video about the project.

Here’s more about the book: “Our book will be plot driven, focusing on the Steampunk theme and a group of fictional characters called The Ladies of Mischief living during the 1890s. In addition to being the featured characters in the story, the Ladies also model and explain the knitting patterns. The patterns will all be designed by local, independent designers within the project and will feature yarns from independent yarn and fiber artisans, most of whom are not widely known to the knitting community. By combining engaging characters with knitting patterns drawn from the story itself, we are able to create a world for our readers to fall into.  In turn, this makes our book as enjoyable to read as it is to knit from. Through the story and patterns our readers will expand their knowledge of knitting and fiber arts, while falling in love with the exciting world of steampunk, just as we have.”
