So, remember that red mohair yarn I talked about making into socks awhile back? Well, I did start knitting socks with them, (which knitted up gorgously by the way), but in the process of working on the leg portion I got struck with another idea to turn them into a pair of leg warmers. Well, it so happened that a couple of knitting opportunities have arise and my leg warmers seem like a perfect fit for one of them. So my once mohair socks are now a swatch with sketch design for leg warmers, currently on their way to being considered for a magazine. Crossing my fingers. Wish me luck.
It is time to celebrate. I checked my emails last night and what did I find? Why this adorable note sent to me by the good people over at Sanguine Gryphon:
We are very interested in publishing your sock design, and I would like to have the opportunity to discuss the design process with you.
Please call when you can, xxx-xxx-xxxx.
Sqeels of excitement along with lots of childish jumping around followed the reading of this email. My first sock design accepted. I shall frame this email and I will love it and squeeze it and hug it and call it George.
I called dear beautiful Jamie who talked to me about the details of the project. Now I wait for the contract and yarn to arrive. *Liver Chick gets up from laptop and does a happy dance once around the room”
Oh, by the way, my sock design I submitted for Clotheshorse was rejected the very same day. Go figure!
