I just looked at the Knitty deadlines and the next one is June 15 (for the fall issue). Eeek. That sounds like plenty of time, but I want to submit a pattern this time, which leads me to think of several things. Like how Amy likes photos (who doesn't?) and I suck at photography, and that my pattern-writing in normal conditions can at best be described as 'minimalist'. So maybe it'd be good to start on the project NOW, rather than spend the first two weeks of June knitting like mad and shrieking at people. (There will be enough of that in September, with the state fair deadline, anyway.)
So I'm gonna swatch for that, using the alpaca that Netter sent me. Don't worry, it's lightweight and stockinette. I'm kind of behaving. Kind of. Sorta. Maybe.
