Deadline day!

December 1, 2008

As Sarah mentioned in her previous posting, we are just finishing up the lovely issue #9. This has been a week of many deadlines, actually — an online knitting challenge I founded a few years ago called NaKniSweMo (National Knit a Sweater Month) ended yesterday. Originally designed as a companion to the even-crazier challenge called NaNoWriMo, in which you attempt to write a 50,000-word novel in a month, I have to say the knitting is easier than the writing! You saw a preview of this sweater on the 17th of November…turned out nicely, eh?

It’s called Rivulet and it will soon be for sale on Ravelry and elsewhere.

Speaking of websites…as soon as I do final checks on this issue of YF, we’re turning our attention to the complete overhaul of the Yarn Forward website. You can expect easier to find errata, a new way to submit problems you are having with patterns and lots more. We’re also planning to transition the blog to the actual domain, copying over all the old posts and comments, but we will make sure to leave you a note here when that happens!
