Many of you know that Erika and I are part of the publishing team for Mad Lovin’ Mama, a local parenting magazine. Now she and I are partnering up for a new project.
MLM will soon have a
Koi most likely will look like an art
book–full-page, hand-bound and with hand-pasted color graphics; we
expect to get it laid out and printed by mid-September.
The ideas behind Koi run to
knitting, crafting and socially-responsible life. Planned features
include, but are not limited to: Fair trade yarns at our LYS,
Insubordiknit‘s over-the-top handspuns, craft projects, knitting
patterns, book reviews, family-run fiber businesses, spooky Halloween
knit stories, and content from far-flung weblogs. We’re especially
pleased to display a painting by a local mama artist on our cover.
We’re still accepting submissions, so if your genius has hatched patterns or knitting-related writing you think our readers want to share, please let us know!
If you’re interested in getting the first issue, please leave a comment, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
