Peacock Paisley Intarsia Chart

My peacock paisley intarsia chart is going to be included in Picture Perfect Knits by Laura Birek, from Chronicle Books!  I love every single thing Chronicle Books puts out.  It's so exciting to know my design (and name!) is going to be in one of their books!  Yay!

Here's the announcement on their blog.  Here's the design:

To make the intarsia chart, I made a quick sketch in black marker, I placed the drawing under a sheet of Doane Paper, and then I started coloring in boxes.  Dramatic reenactment to the left. :)

Doane Paper is my newest-favorite office supply.  It's an awesome grid paper that's also lined.  I was hooked right after I printed my own sheet using his free sample pdf. It's perfect for lists, futuregirly graphs, intarsia charts, and project diagrams.  Plus, buying Doane Paper supports an indie creator. What's more awesome than that?

That's awesome getting creations published... when can we expect a FutureGirl Designs book.

Oh my, how cool would that be? Doing a book of your own crafty designs, neato!

As always, congratulations on continuing to spread the Craft Karma :)

Congratulations! It looks like a beautiful pattern. It sounds like there are lots of things going on in futuregirlworld, with the Anticraft book, boingboing, and now this. It sounds like great fun, and I hope 2008 will bring more of the same for you :-)

How cool, we'll be in this book together! And I agree with more - I'm looking forward to a FutureGirl Designs book, too. Keeping a space on my bookshelf reserved for it now .... :-)
