The knew Knitty is up. Always good news.
I am not in it. That was puzzling, because I'd sent in an article that I thought was good. I hadn't heard anything from Amy, but she's been swamped (appearance on Knitty Gritty, book tour, writing another book) and I knew she doesn't have time to hold the hand of every person who writes for her.
So I e-mailed and asked what was up. While I was waiting for a reply (not that long - she was quick), I started thinking, maybe my article got lost in e-mail heaven, and I could re-submit it for the spring issue and not have to write another one by January 2. That started sounding pretty good to me.
Then Amy replied. I'm in the surprise part of the issue, so my article will, eventually, be up. Which is cool.
But this means I really do have to write another article by the second.
Anybody know how I feel about all this? I don't. Haha.
Anyway, I'll give everyone a teaser for the article. It explains how to choose colors, and I used that method to choose the yarn I just got for the Geometric Star. (In fact, I would have explained it here, except I knew the article was pending.) And a photo tease:
(I did all the swatch photography in the driveway, for natural light, and got some seriously weird looks from the neighbors.)
