Sunday was the deadline for submissions to Knit Picks for their Fall Accessories 2015 collection, so that’s when I sent my proposal.
From the call:
Quirky and fun accessories for fall. Colorful with some colorwork, the emphasis is on clever and whimsical little things to wear: hats, mittens, gloves, scarves, cowls and bags. Animals, food, bikes, birds, flowers, small mythical creatures like gnomes are all good ideas for motifs. Make it cute!
I proposed some fingerless mitts that I had designed as a sanity project while working on The Sweater.
Here’s a peek at the top of the mitts.
There are no animals, food, bikes, birds, flowers, or gnomes in this design (nor will there ever be), but they are clever and could be considered whimsical.
The call says they notify by January 30th, two weeks after the deadline rather than their usual one week, which tells me that they’re starting to get a lot more submissions to their calls, which means more competition, which means I need extra prayers and good thoughts, okay?
To Ponder: People only get really interesting when they start to rattle the bars of their cages. |-Alain de Bottom-|
