Afternoon, Sunshines! Just a quick reminder that today is the deadline for submitting a crafter's profile for Craft Corps. If you haven't already, send 'em in, s'il vous plait.
In Eco-Stitch news: Our source for newpaper yarn fell through and we're not having any luck finding a new one. If you or anyone else makes it, please post here and let me know. We need very little yardage for the small project we're using it for, but time is running out. Thanks in advance! Ok, moving on...
The editor's of Crochet Today! magazine came to me with a very specific request for a chevron poncho based on a sketch they generated and yarn they wanted used. The result, is featured in the Sept./Fall '08 issue, on sale now! It's a little bit country, and little bit rock n' roll. ;)
Prairie Poncho ModeledThe issue itself is seriously Southwestern--and oddly enough, when I recently interviewed Etsy's Matt Stinchcomb for an upcoming CRL podcast, he kept mentioning crochet cacti--and wouldn't you know it, there's a cutie-pie pattern for them in the mag! Somebody's getting insider info. ;)
Ok, I'm going to the couch to crochet with grocery bags and wallow in self-pity over the writer's block I'm having. Have a great weekend!
