I got my contributor’s issue of Crochet Today in the mail today (a full week later than everyone else in blog land). Thank you mail man for continuing to shove it into the box so it gets nice and crinkly. Really, I think my mailman probably hates me because he constantly shoves things in so he won’t have to carry them up to me. Anyway, here’s my design for the issue- a crochet embellished tee.
I still get all excited when I see my projects in print. I love to see them nicely styled, on a model, and all of that. And, after having been the one who had to worry about the “look” (somewhat, anyway), it’s nice that someone ELSE gets to do it. Yay. If you’re wondering, this project is from the July issue and is not quite on the newsstands yet (I looked today, so impatient with the mailman), but look for it soon. It is chock full of cute, colorful projects that make me wish the beach wasn’t thousands of miles away.
Something else that was kind of funny to me in this issue was a little quote about me in the Etsy article.
“Our regular Crochet Dr. contributor Linda Permann also has an online store, where she sells stylish hats and dainty crocheted earrings–all from her Montana home.”
Oh my god, I live in Montana! I guess it’s just weird to read about yourself, and it was definitely weird to make the big change of moving from NY to here last year. I’m always asked about it, and it’s funny to me. Taking chances= learning= good, in my book. We’re actually trying to figure out where to go next from here…. it’s so daunting to think about another cross country move. So reading this right now, while we’re letting our brains percolate, was just funny to me.
