I’ve been working on a concept for a knitting book for a year or two now. It is something that’s never been done. I have a title and part of the proposal written. I had plans to ask several other knitters to participate.
I just found out that the same exact book is coming out this spring, down to the title, with contributions from several big-name knitters. My book will now never happen. It is too specific a topic for the market to have room for another book just like it.
I am so fucking depressed about this. It is a GREAT idea, and I shouldn’t be surprised that someone else thought of it. But damn it, I WANTED TO WRITE IT.
