Fans of Downton Abbey’s amazing fashions, rejoice!

Just in time for holiday gift-knitting, A Head For Trouble: What To Knit While Catching Crooks, Chasing Clues, and Solving Murders (20 Hats & Adornments Inspired by Lady Detectives of the Roaring Twenties) was released in October, 2014. It is available in both electronic and paperback format both here and on my website: www.julieturjoman.com.

Knit something special for your inner flapper!

Lively flapper Jasmine (Jazz) Cross is the brainchild of author Ellen Mansoor Collier. Jazz navigates both high society as well as the seedier sides of Prohibition-era Galveston, TX while keeping an eye out for the big break that will make her newspaper editor take her seriously as a journalist. Independent and with moxie to spare, Jazz investigates speakeasies, gang crime, and glittering society swells in adventures that are inspired by true events.

This colorful pillbox with its striped chevron stitch rise is certain to get Jazz noticed in both the city’s most exclusive and its most down-market nightspots. Today’s knitter will appreciate the warmth of the stylish double-layered rise during this winter’s polar vortex.
