Shameless Solicitation

…the kind with yarn though, not the kind with criminal charges and embarrassing social diseases.

So, I’m planning out my knitting for the upcoming year.  Yes I realize there’s a bit of a disconnect here.  Half a year ago I was agonizing over whether it was ok to charge for patterns.  Now I’m making a knitting schedule.  It feels rather odd, but odd in a fundamentally awesome way, so I’m sticking with it.  I’ve got lots of exciting collaborative projects coming up in the next year, but it looks like I still have a few spots left.  So this is where you guys come in.

If you make or dye yarn, and you want me to design a sock with your yarn, get in touch!  I love working with independent producers and am very open to coming up with arrangements that work for everyone.  Don’t be shy, I want to hear from you.

Now I know not all of you make or dye yarn, but I’m guessing pretty much everyone reading this uses yarn, so here’s the second part.  If you have a favorite yarn maker or dyer, and you’d like to see me work with their yarn, let me know.  Better yet, let them know too!  Help me find great new yarns.  Feel free to email me (hunter at violentlydomestic dot com) if you’re feeling stealthy and don’t want to put suggestions in the comments.
