I'm also going design crazy. I just finished socks for the Spring '07 issue of Cast-On, and I've been swatching for Classic Elite's Fall '07 pattern line (they were nice enough to send me a big box of yarn, so I figure the least I can do is swatch up some stuff for them). I've also got a couple other magazine submission deadlines I want to try to swatch for, I got a bunch of gorgeous Hip Knits yarn in the mail for some designs I'm doing for them, and I've got that big box of Bam Boo waiting to be turned into a maternity sweater. Whew!
I don't know if you remember me complaining a couple weeks back about two of my designs getting bumped (one was the Interweave sock pattern, which is hopefully going to be in the Spring issue instead)... The other day I got a box in the mail from the publisher of the Knitting For Babies book, which was the one I thought I'd been bumped from with no explanation/notification/etc. Well, it turns out there are two versions of the book - a little magazine-like leaflet, which is the one I wasn't in, and a nice spiral-bound hardcover book which my pattern is most definitely in. Yay! It even got a little thumbnail pic in the table of contents. If you happen to see it (it's got a baby in a cute little blue cabled hoodie on the front), my pattern is the Felted Block Set.
And Yvonne pointed out that the Spring Knitscene preview is up, and look who's in it (scroll down to #5 - Rutabaga)! Yay! This was a really fun project to design and knit.
Stariel took care of this week's sock update, but the pizza is here so you're going to have to wait a bit longer. Tomorrow at the latest, I promise!
