yes, this IS my day job... - Diary of a Necromancer
Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense, you're just not keeping up
yes, this IS my day job...
Dyed another batch of yarn Tuesday. I'm getting quite good at reproducing a colorway that looks like leprechaun sick. I'll know how well the other experiments have turned out whenever the sink-fairy gets around to miraculously emptying out the dinner dishes, so I can rinse these skeins out...

The weekend's other interesting yarn-related mail-call:

(Longtime Readers will guess, correctly, that this is a prettified-for-the-nonblog-audience version of one of Snip's more harrowing adventures.) And yes, I've already spent the small check that came with my contributor's copy on yarn -- it seemed fitting. But lordy, what a way to make a living, I can't even find the entry where I said I was thinking of submitting something to this, it's been so long...

[EDIT, about half an hour later: Ah, that far back, was it? No wonder I couldn't find it for a while... Hmph.]

Yay! Publishing is good. Should we all run out and buy the book now? I feel like I should purchase it and proudly display it on my coffee table and when people look at it and ask why I have such an odd book seeing as how I don't knit, I can proudly turn to the appropriate page and proudly proclaim,

"I know this person!"

Yeah. I'm weird.

Certainly wouldn't hurt, I've been trying to convince them that they need to be doing publicity events in between the coasts and seeing some sales figures from this area might reinforce that...

I've actually had a beading-pattern in a magazine a while back, but this is my first perfect-bound byline. ;)
