I want to, very badly, so I'm going to....
I got in to Stitch'n'Bitch.
I feel very bad about this. Oh, I'm happy, stunned, mostly incredulous, but it's just that there are SO many incredible people out there who raced to design something WAY COOL, submitted, lived in a state of adrenaline panic for months, and then didn't make it.
I just sent off what I had and forgot about it, utterly convinced I'd never get in.
And then the clouds parted on my inbox and I was, in fact, in. So here I am wanting to shout it to the metaphorical skies of Craftster, and in actuality only telling my MOM. The only other person I know who's spilled the beans is Keridiana at Pink Sheep (CONGRATULATIONS, dear!!!)....anybody else?
I've been looking at the rejected patterns and let me tell you, this book is going to be the Rolling Stone of fibre arts if THESE patterns didn't make the cut. My Gosh.
So now I have to have a sample sent in by June 1. Eeek.
While this whole thing I haven't really accepted yet, (I secretly believe I'm hallucinating...Brown Sheep yarn? In MY mailbox? No, no, silly rabbit, Brown Sheep is for...well..not you.) I DID find a gigantic pile of 70's needlecraft magazines for ten cents each at a yard sale this weekend. I'll try to scan some of the awfullest designs and send them to Stitchy. There's some extemely cool stuff too, and I'd love to trade or lend out anything you'd like...if there's any kind of pattern from 1964-1974 that you're looking for, I probably have it. I even have the one for the knitted face ski masks! You know, the ones that bring the words, "serial killer" instantly to mind?
