It’s been crunch time around here, design-wise, which means everything else has been taking a backseat. The KC spring issue is scheduled to go live next week, and I’ve been frantically adjusting layout and photography, all at the same time as creating a brochure for the first ever Knitcircus retreat. It’s exciting, but definitely time-consuming. It’s nice to be busy, though. I’m pretty excited about this issue, I think it’s looking really beautiful. I’ve got all kinds of ideas for other work, that I’m looking forward to pursuing once this stuff is public consumption. Patterns, type explorations, posters, fabric (!!), screen printed shirts, a prickly pear creative website. Plus I’m trying to move the blog. Crazy.
At the same time, I’m having the hardest time focusing lately. I’ve got so many ideas running around in my head, not to mention my desk, that I flit amongst them, and they keep me up at night. I had a dream this morning about a man at my door with an axe. Perhaps my psyche is ready to go on strike.
So here’s a sneak peek into the magazine. I had the opportunity to shoot all of the photography for this issue, which is super exciting for me. I heard that Jared Flood thought that my photo of those shelter mitts was beautiful! I got to stretch my legs a little on that Yarn Stylist illustration for an essay.
And I promise I’ll talk about those macarons later. Pinky Swear.
Plus the brochure, which I can’t wait to see printed!
