The new special issue magazine from Interweave is on its way. I haven't seen it on newsstands yet, but for the eager (or impatient) it is available as a digital download from Interweave's online store. It's a gorgeous issue, with a dramatic, sophisticated colour palette and beautiful photography. It's flattering to have a design included in such company. I'm including a few screen shots as an amuse-bouche, click Read more to check them out.
My Crossed Jacket is included in the "assembly required" section, which features designs with asymmetrical closures, visible seams, hand-felting, cutaway fronts, and simple textures. The main body of Crossed is worked in Blue Sky Alpaca's Organic Worsted Cotton, while the contrast trim is worked in their 100% baby alpaca Melange. Both are beautiful yarns. The dark trim against the pale jacket reminds me of Coco Chanel.

Or maybe it is on newsstands already. I don't know. It's not on Ravelry. Or is it? Maybe I should do another search. I'm really excited. You can tell because I'm talking really fast. Look at how beautiful the cover is. It's nerve-wracking (if you're a paranoid over-achiever), sending your designs off into the wild, hoping they arrive in time, hoping they fit the model. I sometimes wake up in the middle of the night, thinking, did I remember to weave in my ends? Did I send the right sweater to the right magazine? Just a little high-strung.
Nope, I just checked, it's not on Ravelry yet.
