Hard Pressed July 23, 2010Posted by Laura in Books & Magazines, Design.
…as in seriously hard-pressed to find my writing mojo. Between Ravely, Facebook, Plurk & Twitter, I’m all worded out. The social media thing seems to be the in thing and phasing out the blog thing. But sometimes there’s news of such a stupendous level that plurking & tweeting just doesn’t seem to be enough, and today I have just such an occasion. Well, 3 to be exact. All of them have one common theme: Press
First, the release of Annie Modesitt’s new book: 1000 Fabulous Knit Hats. Even though none of my hats were amongst the winning ones, I have 4 of them in there. I know! I contributed a whole .04% of that book. I only wish I knew which of my hats are featured. I think I submitted pictures of at least 6 of them. I guess I’ll have to buy the book to find out. Just think, I can now include the sentence “As Featured in 1000 Fabulous Knit Hats” to the pattern of those selected!
And as if that isn’t enough, one of my patterns has been selected to be featured in the 2011 Knitting Pattern-A-Day calendar. My Clamber cap is Miss February 21, 2011! She is all a-twitter…see?
And last, but certainly not least, I’m getting published in a honest-t0-goodness magazine: I will have a pattern in a upcoming issue of Yarn Forward. I’m not quite sure yet which issue the pattern will be in, so if anyone subscribes to Yarn Forward and sees an Eton Cap pattern by Laura Wilson-Martos, please let me know!
Also, if anyone has any extra pattern-writing mojo, can they send it my way? I’ve got 2 patterns I need to transfer from my head and scrawled notes into charts and written instructions, and also test knit 2 more sock patterns before publishing them. But, it seems like all I want to do is knit on the February Baby Sweater for my newest little niece, Meilena.
