I'm so excited to tell you about the article I wrote for Interweave Crochet's Summer Issue! They have a reoccurring column called "Crochet Around Town" that focuses on the crafty/crochet/fun spots in a certain city. In the last issue the illustrious Vickie Howell
wrote a great piece about Austin. I almost exploded when Interweave emailed me and asked me to write a tour of crafty Philadelphia.
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?
