Hey there! Quite a response I got from the poll the other day. I guess I'm not surprised considering the depth and breadth of the talent, wit, knowledge, creativity, etc. we have here as a group.

I like the ideas of having proceeds go back into the MWK site and/or charity... I can see doing both actually. At this point I'd like to try to pitch the idea to book publishers to see if there's any interest in it. Self-publishing is always an option too. My sister got a book of photography published going through a site called Blurb (www.blurb.com). I found a few knitting books on there (mainly photo-essay types). So if you're interested, maybe think about and start working on what you'd like to contribute, whether it be a pattern, an essay, a story, a tip, etc. This could be a lot of fun!
