Ah'll Be Bahck
Don't blame me - I voted against the recall.
For any of you who have any lingering questions about the whole copyright thing, Jenna has a great FAQ section on her site. It answers almost any question you could ever have, from a legal standpoint (and she IS a lawyer).
And now on to what you're really here for...socks!
Shelley finished up some blue brownie-point socks for her nephew. Nice work!
Julie finished her January socks while watching the BBC Pride & Prejudice. Sock knitting and Colin Firth - what could be better? She made up her own pattern and it is muy cool!
New socker Kathy gets some brownie points for her very nifty cabled socks.
Jill finally overcame her Jaywalking difficulties to get her J!
I just got back from a great class, How To Get Published, taught by the always fabulous Leigh Radford at Lint. She brought in a bunch of examples of things that she has submitted, including her very first proposal to IK (which was accepted, of course) and her book proposal for Alterknits. It was great to see how she does things, and I got lots of ideas. Her first sweater proposal was so cool - the theme of the magazine was going to be something like "You're sitting at a cafe in Paris overlooking the Seine - what are you wearing?" Leigh came up with a very creative idea to put her proposal inside the pages of Madame Bovary. She went to Powell's and got an old French version of the book and put her sketches and text on little cards that she taped to pages inside the book. How cool is that?
She also brought an advance copy of her next book, One Skein, which will be coming out in March. There were a ton of great projects. One of my favorites was a set of tiny felted bowls. I can't wait to get my hands on my own copy! Go to her website and you can sign up for her mailing list to be notified when it comes out and where she's going to be doing signings.
I got a bunch of great yarn, too (gotta take advantage of that 10% discount!), but you'll have to wait for Yarn Porn Monday to see it.
