(Wow, it’s been a call for submissions kind of weekend, hasn’t it? My fall book tour partner-in-crime Kim Werker posted her own request yesterday, for the sequel to Get Hooked — check it out, crocheters!)
I’m project-editing two new books in the Lion Brand “Just…” series published by Potter Craft. (Potter Craft brought you Amy and Jillian‘s brilliant Big Girl Knits, which posted its very own Big Girl Knits 2 CFS to the Knitty designers’ list yesterday — official CFS weekend event #2!)
In this case, I’m editing Just Socks and Just Gifts. Other books in the series have included Just Scarves and Just Hats. Each book will feature 30 patterns, which can be knit or crochet. Just Socks features…well…socks and Just Gifts includes quick little projects of all descriptions. We’re working on short deadlines here, so if you’d like to submit, please send an email to me before the 10th with the following information:
- A detailed description of the pattern, with sketch or photo if possible
- Previous design experience, if any
- Will you be able to knit or crochet the project by mid-May?
- Can the project be knit or crocheted in Lion Brand yarns? Which?
That should suffice for right now. As I mentioned, the deadlines will be pretty tight. We’re aiming to have all finished items to me by mid- to late-May, so the tech editors can get to work pronto. Designers will be paid, and you’ll receive yarn from us to make your item if accepted.
At least the projects are small!
In not-so-small project news: Stefanie at Glampyre is looking for experienced production knitters to help knit some garments for her upcoming book. Drop her an email if you’re interested.
