...it just goes on and on my friends....
Two days ago, I came across the submission call for Storey Publishing for one skein crochet projects. I had just purchased a skein of hand painted sock yarn earlier this week with another project in mind, but it seemed perfect for what popped into my head.
I envisioned an open work pattern shawl or scarf. Certainly a 400 yard skein could make that, right?
It turns out that it only took 1/2 a skein to make the scarf, and I didn't like the look of it. Thus, I ripped it out and started on plan B - the shawl. As it was to be triangular, I started at the bottom back point and kept increasing each row. I thought it might be about 50 rows. Wrong! 50 rows turned into 60 rows turned into 70 + rows!
In the past I have easily gone through (2) 200 yard skeins of yarn in a day. I didn't think this project would take as long as it has - I won't be finishing the construction until later this morning, and it's due today!
This is my first time with a submission that is both email and snail mail. I can only hope that a proposal emailed today will be considered on time!
