Anyhow, she’s also running some sort of sale which I am totally ignoring as I am BROKE, but go check it out!
As for designing, I am desiging a knit SOMETHING that I hope will be Knitty.com worthy. It is possible, yes? So I need testers. I need someone to use sport weight yarn, about 250-300 yards, someone to use fingering weight yarn, about 400-500 yards (375 will probably be fine too! ), and someone to use laceweight yarn, I have no idea how many yards. Like, anywhere from 400-1600? lol
I am knitting the prototype in Chewy Spaghetti sport yarn, one of my prizes from Sheri at The Loopy Ewe. I need to take a picture of the yarn cake, the colours play sooooo prettily! Anyhow, I am knitting it up and I LOVE it.
So if you are interested test knitting the pattern for me (I’d REALLY be happy if it could be written, tested, and submitted to Knitty by Dec. 15, but I’ll not hold my breath!), email me at Secret Agent Knits at yahoo dot com or ping me on Twitter (@SecretAgentFibr) and we’ll talk! Being able to take pictures is a plus, but not a requirement.
In lieu of actual knitting content (I am editing the photos, I promise! I’m actually in a mad dash to get some school photos in tonight; they are late already! I am procrastinating! Yay? Oh, and did I mention I’m sick? *sympathy plea* lol ), I thought I would show you two strips from my very favorite web comic:
And then, there is a new(-ish?) comic that is JUST about Knitting!
Knit Princess is AWESOME.
I think Multnomah is going viral. I really do.
I’ve actually seen it elsewhere, but I never bookmark, so you’ll (and by you I mean the spider who is my only reader, if you can say a robot reads) have to take my word for it!
But I want to make one, so I need to finish up some other WIPs. Mebbe it can be a reward knit? (I’m behind with college work, so can’t knit for me right now. Booo.) Too bad I’m sick right now, or I would totally be finishing up a few. I don’t want to embed the germs in the yarn. Weird, huh?
Sorry I didn’t get to this on time, I am siiiiick. Maybe swine flue sick. No fun. Anyhow…
I had 4 entrants and 6 entries. Random.org chose the number 5, Anna! Congratulations, Anna!
I have emailed Marnie with your email address, so you should get your pattern very soon! Enjoy!
Ooooh, I want it!
Anyhow, you can enter at her blog, and here’s what I said I wanted:
I can hardly choose, but I think I have decided to go with Malabrigo Lace in Paris Night. Or Citrus. Or Brisa. Because I cannot decide! I’m envisioning an Ishbel for sure!
