Submission Is Damn Sexy

When most people think of the word, ‘submission’, they think of some poor woman buried under the foot of an overbearing husband. Some more kinky-minded individuals think of the S&M games we like to play in the bedroom. To knitters, the very sound of the word turns us on!

Knitters know that submitting can be damn sexy and very fulfilling. So, what kind of submission am I talking about? It’s the kind that can transform a knitter from a hobby crafter into a full-fledged knitwear designer. It’s submitting your work for publication consideration.

There are knitters who have wet dreams over the thought of their patterns being published. And if your pattern makes it to the coveted front cover of a knitting magazine, well, that’s a full on orgasm right there! It doesn’t matter if you just learned to knit two weeks ago. If you have a design idea in your head, why not take the chance to turn it into a sweet profitable reality?

Below are a list of a few upcoming calls for submissions for you to consider. *Warning- the reading of submission guidelines is  known to be an aphrodisiac.
