This cover story started way back in February....
As with most publications, a "Call for Submissions" is sent out to designers on a list and--- these days--- announced on web sites. I found the "Call" for the Interweave Felt issue on Ravelry. Though I had a lot on my plate at the time, I also had a felt project rattling in my head waiting for a reason to pop out.
My drawing skills are sketchy-- just a bit of a pun intended--so I thought it best to quickly whip up a prototype to best share my idea. With a shallow dig through my stash, I found a few hanks of discontinued Rowanspun 4ply in the fantastic and aptly named shade Squirrel. After some serious quick-step knitting in very loose stocking stitch, a rapid run through the washer-- fingers crossed-- and some flat drying I was ready for the fun part... needle felting with some stashed sliver!
Then, the final step... get it "submission ready" for the editorial eyes of Lisa Shroyer and the rest of Felt's selection team.
Tada!!! This was my submission....
Curious..... the styling of the cover?.... the styling of my submission?..... hmmmm..... curious.... ;-)
Look for this issue of Felt-- sporting my Suri Spot Mitts on the cover-- on newstands everywhere starting September 9th!
The following is the back and forth of emails between Fleece Artist and myself as we worked through the colour of the sliver used in the making of my "cover project":
