It seems everyone's preparing for their fall and winter collections, which means there are multiple deadlines for me to juggle with what design I want to submit where.
I've been quite excited recently by this whole submissions thing. So much so, I had to put all the dates into a Google calendar to remind me when I need to actually send things off to the various publishers.
Feels a little unreal sometimes, scribbling notes, sketching stitches, thumbing through my collection of stitch dictionaries... as though I'm a "real" designer. And yet, I am! And also, so new with it!
Tomorrow I have to put together a submission for a pair of socks, which I hope will work out well. I'm planning to use a combination of cable stitches, and those always leave me cross-eyed. Wish me luck!
