Secret Knitting

Haven't updated too frequently due to the secret knitting project for Magknits. I would have updated with the 7" of jersey I've completed on the DB Raglan, but I didn't want to bore everyone to death! Even after this batch of secret knitting is finished, there might be a whole new batch soon. I'm working on something with someone and that's all I can say for the moment! It's very exciting and I wish I could spill the beans, but you'll all find out soon enough!

Considering that I may not be getting too much personal knitting done in the near future, I've been trying to think of other things I can talk about. Here's a couple of suggestions that some of you may be interested in:

How to become a designer in the fashion industry
How the fashion industry works (real life - not project runway somewhat real life!)
Current trends/color direction for the season

I'm always asked a lot of questions about what really goes on and how you get here, so maybe you guys would be interested too? Drop me a line, let me know what you think! I would also love to do a little series on designing for handknits, but I just don't have the time right now to devote to something like that. Maybe in the future when things slow down a bit!

The topics you proposed sound interesting to me! I vote do it!

Another vote from me! It would be interesting to hear a comparison between how you design for work vs. the patterns you sell/give to handknitters.

Heh - I'd love to hear what you think of Project Runway! That show was sort of a guilty pleasure in my household this year...

I would love to hear about any and all of those topics!

All of those things sound really great--I will read avidly, if you'd like to talk about them!

Hi, M! Can't wait to hear about your super-secret projects. In the meantime - I am v. interested in color/design trends. Also, is there special software you use for designing? And finally - thanks for the tip about mohair! Freezer...who would have thunk?!
