Stresses on the farm have kept me away from social media for the past week. The need to turn off was overwhelming and necessary, however I returned to Instagram today with a message from IG and Facebook advising me my book cannot be sold/promoted via either platform because of its title! I have already appealed and this appeal has been rejected without further explanation. I can promote the individual patterns/kits but not the book itself.


Some of you may remember me receiving an extremely unpleasant email when I first released details of the book, accusing me of all sorts of nastiness because I called my book Evolution – so called because it is about my personal evolution since recovering from breast cancer and also the evolution of the designs I recreated in the Vintage Shetland Project used as the inspiration for the designs I’ve created in this book. I do wonder if similar reports have been sent to Facebook causing the banning of the book.

The book will finally be published next month but I won’t be able to promote it as I should so please do follow the links in my profile if you would like to purchase a copy and please do spread the word to others about my book, Evolution.
.
The tag evolutionknits is also unacceptable so I will have to come up with a new tag for the book and the projects but I’m reeling a bit at the moment and can’t think of one but please do let me know if you can think of an appropriate, easy to remember tag to replace it.
.
Angry, sad and deflated right now.
