Alle, alle auch sind frei! July 8, 2009Posted by Laura in Design, Dyeing.
aka, “Where the Hell Has La Been, Anyway?!?”
The answer is here, buried under a pile of “to-do” lists and “sooper seekrit shit” lists, so basically, I have a lot to talk about, it’s either that I can’t, or I just can’t get to writing about them in any intelligible manner due to the whole overwhelming, OMG, WAY TOO MUCH STUFF AND I’M FEELING QUITE OVERWHELMED!!1!…stuff.
So, let’s see, stuff to which I am/was sworn to secrecy: Design
- 2 super secret designs for a super secret book collaboration project.
- 1 supper somewhat secret design submitted for magazine publication.
- Entered Annie Modesitt’s “1000 Fabulous Knit Hats“ contest (deadline now extended to July 15)
Stuff to which I am/was sworn to secrecy: Dye
- Mean Girls Yarn Club installment for August.
- Collaboration w/ undisclosable popular knitting personage on undisclosable project.
So far, most of these items are on the “done” list: Pattern & prototypes sent to book author; Concept board sent to Yarn Forward Magazine for consideration (please pick me!); sent multiple pictures of 2 of my more interesting original design hats to Annie (again, please pick me!).
Got the yarn all dyed up for August, and let me tell you, if I NEVER see that color combination ever again, it’ll be too soon! All that’s left is to perfect the nom, package and ship! If all goes well (fingers crossed) the installment will ship 1st and 2nd week of August.
And now onto the undisclosable super seekrit collaboration with an undisclosable popular knitting personage which can now be disclosed. The person is none other than the driving force behind Intentions Yarns, Happy Housewives Soaps & Sniffies and the Purple One (the Empurpleated One?) of the duo: Lime & Violet. Yup, I’ll be hand dyeing the yarns for the Mountain Sole Project. And let me tell you, I am VERY excited about this collaboration! I’m just thinking it’s about time I cloned myself…at least twice.
And, on top of all this, I’m planning to restock Dizzy Blonde Studio. I have 2 new colorways, one is a standard colorway, and the other is a Plurk-inspired signature colorway…
…and renamed a third to pay homage to my newest little everyone’s newest addiction…
Reintroducing Doris with her new last name: Farmtown
If all goes as planned the update will on Tuesday, July 21, sometime after 8:30 am.
Okay, gotta dive back into this pool of productivity. In the meantime, you can catch me on Plurk, Twitter, Ravelry or Facebook. I’m KnottyLa everywhere. Hopefully it won’t be as long between resurfacings. Who knew I could hold my breath that long, huh?
