Saw this on Glitter, thought I would cross post it here....Stitch 'n Bitch II: Call for Submissions...and more!
Hey there knitterati:
I'm working on a follow-up to my first book, "Stitch n Bitch: The Knitter's Handbook." I've already received a lot of great submissions from many of you--especially for nice fancy items, lace knitting, and summer tanks--but I'm looking for a few more basic, simpler projects to help fill out the book. If you have something that you'd like to contribute, please send me a sketch (if it's just something you have an idea for) or a photo (if it's something you've already made) and email it to me at this address -- firstname.lastname@example.org
-- by March 22 (or sooner, if you can). I'm looking for hats, scarves, sweaters, cat items, household stuff, etc., that are hip, fun, or have a bit of an edge. If you know the first book, you know what kinds of projects I'm looking for. If you aren't, you can go here: http://www.bust.com/knithappens/thebook.shtml
to view pictures of the projects in that book.
ALSO, I'm looking for tips and tricks from fellow Stitch n Bitchers. Did you invent a cool new seaming technique? Have a way to save money on knit projects? A rhyme you tell yourself to remember how to do kitchener stitch? Something else? From the simple to the sublime, if you've got a tip or a trick you'd like to share with knitters across the country, please send it to me, along with your name and where you're from, so I can include it in the book.
Thanks in advance, everyone!
