I've haven't been twiddling my thumbs for the past couple months. Instead of knittin', I've been clickin' more on the computer making some graphic designs for some good people. And I've been working part-time as a consultant for a local newspaper group.
First up is an identity package for the Loom Shop/Loom Knitting Central. Loomy friend Stasia is doing an awesome job with this! I'm looking forward to her contributions to the loom-knitting community. The website is still under development but you can follow her on Facebook for tips and project sharing.
The next gal wanted to reinvent her shop with a new name and look. Brenda is a loom-knitter turned needle-knitter and sews, too. She wanted something whimsical that represented both sides of her business. She's currently selling on her Facebook page.
My logo-makin' has been mostly a 2nd- into 3rd-shift job. During the day, I've been working for a group of weekly newspapers. I'm helping them make the shift from one page design program (QuarkXpress) to another (Adobe InDesign). It's been a wonderful experience getting out of the house for a bit and working with some amazing, hard-working people. I'm talking to people instead of the bunny! (Don't worry, Willow still gets some playtime.)
That job is winding down, too, so I'm winding up some yarn! Watch for some new patterns and projects in the coming weeks. PLUS I'm getting ready to head to California to work as a yarn rep for Interlacements Yarns at Stitches West. It's going to be a fun couple of winter months! Stay warm and keep crafting!
