Submitting crochet patterns
A couple of months ago, I was reading Vickie Howell's blog and she was requesting patterns for a new book of hers entitled "Catwalk Crochet". She and her publisher are only willing to pay $75 - $100 per design. Ok, two months later she has extended the deadline for submission for three more weeks to April 4th. It appears that she has been inundated with crocheted accessories and possible fugwear crochet. She said that she is looking for "high-fashion" designs comparable to Marc Jacobs, Anna Sui, Stella McCartney, etc... I know I could produce something along these lines, but do I really want to make the investment on the yarn and TIME for at the most 100 bucks just to say I have a published design? Hell-to-the-no!
Back to knitting
The Soleil is coming along nicely. I've just entered the world on endless stockinette, this is always the part that I hate.
