Way back in October I submitted a sweater to Knitscene Fall 2015 for their Style Icons story.
On Saturday, my one and only piece of mail was the swatch. It wasn’t a surprise, really. Within a month of the deadline, they email if they want it, so I knew it wasn’t happening by Thanksgiving.
But it still kind of sucks to get the swatch back.
On the bright side:
- The swatch can be used as a cowl, which means I can sell it.
- I won’t have to put The Sweater on hold while I design this one.
- It’s not like I’ve never been published by Knitscene.
Just so I can have a picture in this post, here’s a Pinterest mashup showing a yoke design that looks like wooden switch plates.
The cardigan is by one of my favorite designers, Marie Wallin, who has no trouble getting published.
Of course, she probably doesn’t screw around all day on Pinterest.
To Ponder: To embark on the journey toward your goals and dreams requires bravery. To remain on that path requires courage. The bridge that merges the two is commitment. |-Steve Maraboli-|
The Big Lebowski is my most favoritist movie of all time, and I follow a board or two on Pinterest dedicated to that theme.
Here are a couple of recent Pinterest mashups* that feature The Dude.
“Mr. Treehorn treats objects like women, man.”
“That rug really tied the room together.”
* I follow lots of different kinds of boards on Pinterest. Knitting boards, of course, but also boards for style, design, the comforting images of snow and rain, coffee/tea, modernist architecture, inspirational quotes, The Big Lebowski, and tiny houses. Every so often, a couple of pins sit close together and editorialize each other.
To Ponder: Sometimes you eat the bar and, sometimes the bar, well, he eats you. |-The Stranger-|
In today’s fortuitous, random Pinterest editorial, we have a cowgirl roping what? An albino gorilla? A Hungarian sheepdog? A Cotswold sheep?

Today we have some knitting that looks like a tube of toothpaste.
