I Want to Knit

On the Back Burner
I will be taking a small, temporary break from the knitalongs I signed up with. I am still participating (and eagerly awaiting the next Amazing Lace Challenge!) but have something a little more pressing to occupy my knitting time in the near future.

About a week ago I was browsing through the Knitlist emails, and found one from Debbie Stoller, author of Stitch 'n Bitch, Stitch 'n Bitch Nation, and Stitch 'n Bitch: The Happy Hooker, not to mention related knitting journals. She put a call out for submissions to the next "Stitch 'n Bitch" book, which, in her words, will "be an advanced knitting manual, and I'm looking for patterns that incorporate a bit of fancy-pants knitting such as cables, lace, color work (either intarsia or fair isle or, hell, both!), beading, etc. The book will be covering these techniques in great detail, as well as much more."

Remember that pattern idea I hinted that I'd be looking into starting soon? Well, I thought it might be perfect for the next book. However, it's such an "out there" pattern, that I didn't want to waste my time working up swatches and taking photos unless it would actually be considered, and not deleted right away because of it's uniqueness. So I sent an email outlining my idea and asking if such an animal would be considered for the book.

I just received an email back from Debbie's assistant telling me that it would definately be considered, BECAUSE it's so unique and original. :]]]]

Guess who's off to the yarn store tonight? I had really wanted to use Knitpick's Palette yarn, but there is no way I could order it and have it shipped to me in enough time to work up some swatches before the submission deadline. So it's LYS yarn hunting time!
