InKnitters article

This has been one of those challenging projects, and I didn’t want to jinx it by announcing prematurely – but my article in InKnitters is finally in mailboxes. I haven’t been able to find a copy at any of our local bookstores yet, and their website is still showing Spring’s issue – but I’ll post a picture when I get one!

I don’t know if it ended up being four pages or five, because they were doing some format work on it – but it’s mentioned on the cover (so I’ve been told) and what I saw as a proofing galley looked very nice. It’s amazing what a little layout work and some editorial spit and polish can do for one’s writing.

Needless to say, I’m very excited! This is my first article in a national magazine, and it’s something I’ve wanted to do for a long time.

    It IS lovely and you should be exceptionally proud of yourself 🙂 It’s 5 pages on the sericulture and a page of “Worm Spit”. So SIX pages!

    Wow! I’ll try to pick up a copy. You do beautiful work.

    I’m a beginning knitter but have been crocheting for years.

    …and atomslife pointed me in your direction…hope you don’t mind.

    Hey! I pretty much never mind. 🙂

    Just a note – I’ll add you to my Friends List, which means you can read protected entries – almost all of which are my dream journalling. Just skip it if they’re too weird.

    The folks at InKnitters also publish Crochet Fantasy – not sure yet if they’ll pick up the article, but it’s a possibility.

    Congratulations! An article in a glossy on your first try. And a coverline…very impressive. I used to write for magazines and I remember how different–so professional–my articles looked when they were in print. I couldn’t quite believe I actually wrote them! Way to go….

    Weird? That sounds familiar when it comes to dreams. 🙂

    Same for my journal, except it sometimes includes venting but usually just has day to day norms and current projects.

    Hi Michael! Congrats on your continued success.

    I’ve added you to my LJ, if that’s cool.

    I will see you tonight @ the park! Thanks again for the invites.

    Hello, at one time I had you listed as an LJ friend under my old username or .

    I have readded you under my new name and you are under no obligation to do the same, I am just trying to reconnect with everyone I have lost touch with.

    First, congratulations. Second, I have seen you in a couple of communities we share, and came over to have a looksee at your journal.. and found it interesting. I post in communities as as it is one of my open journals. I would like to add you to my main journal to read daily if you don’t mind?

    Sure!

    Just a note: The only thing that I regularly friends-protect, is my dream-work; you may see some stuff that is weird, gross, disturbing, or sexual behind the cuts, in the dream entries. I haven’t been logging my dreams lately, but there is the occasional entry.

    I read your article, I loved it, if I weren’t dead broke, and group-house living, I’d try it the whole silk worm thing. It certainly seems a lot more sensible than acquiring a smelly quadriped.

    Thanks!

    I had a great time doing it. Can you tell me anything in particular that you think would be interesting in the “read more” sense – for future articles?

    Congratulations!
    I was in InKnitters Spring issue (Turkish Cardigan and accompanying article) and will have at least 2 in the fall issue. It’s a kick to be published, isn’t it?
