Last night I spilled a whole can’s worth of coconut milk in the oven. Don’t ask. Anyway, it took a lot of cleaning to even get it to the stage where I felt comfortable using the “self-clean” cycle on it. And even then there was a ton of smoke! I even had to remove the floor of the over to get at the worst of it, and like most things, getting the floor out was the easy part. Getting it back in was much more annoying. Ever notice that screwdrivers disappear when you need them and then when you find one, it’s the wrong kind? What a morning.
When magazine and websites need designs, they put out a “call for submissions.” This usually includes information like what the compensation is (how much they’ll pay for a design), how copyright is dealt with, who does the photography, and yarn support (if they’ll supply the yarn), etc. Most important, though, is the information about what they want. Some publications have a theme or themes in mind or certain fibers or yarns they want patterns for. Sometimes they’re looking for types of patterns like sweaters or accessories or quick knits. You get the idea. Most often there are themes, which can range from “bulky and colorful” to “traditional with a modern flair” to “art deco.” Obviously, as a designer, you pick and choose the themes you like or have ideas for.
I saw this in a call today: “Bohemian meets Greek Goddess in this romantic theme with a 70’s vibe.”
I have absolutely no idea what that would look like.
