For once I’m actually posting EARLY for you guys! I’m not counting this as a Midweek Squee, even though it’s being posted midweek and is totally squeeworthy, because I probably won’t get time to post at the weekend. So I’m bending my rules a little lol.
Anyway – excellent news! I recently entered a competition in Let’s Get Crafting’s Knitting and Crochet Magazine. You had to pick a starter sentence from three given (I chose ‘Asking the woman at the bus stop what she was knitting turned out to be the best question I ever asked’). I wrote a short story in a Film Noir style, full of puns about crafters of all kinds, and investigating a yarn bombing (see what I did there?).
AND I WON!
The story is published in this month’s issue of Knitting and Crochet Magazine, so UK peeps can get their mitts on a copy from tomorrow (Friday 8th November) although subscribers will have had theirs posted to them on Wednesday (mine arrived then anyway).
It’s a magazine well worth buying even if it didn’t feature yours truly – free yarn, needles and hook and loads of cool patterns.
But you know, buy it mostly for my writing talent 😉
