What a couple of week's I'm having, all good, lots of new ideas, projects etc. Firstly the knitting experiment is taking shape, the first experiment will look at the effect of knitting and cross stitching on rumination in depression, there is lots going on with this, update will be as the project develops. I have to say many thanks to future publishing (they publish simply knitting) because they are being very generous, with helping as much as they can.
Secondly I am going to launch an on-line fiber magazine 'Cyber Fyberarts' a similar idea to Magknits and Knitty, but it will be dedicated to fyber arts.
It will contain lots of spinning, and felting and lots of other fabulous fyber related projects to get your teeth into. Articles on techniques, and even a resident 'Spin Doctor' to solve all your spinning woes. ( I have someone in mind for this, she just has to say yes.....!!)
There will be articles on all sorts, from people who Nurture the fyber and their fyber producing pets, and a regular spot on the ways in which fyber arts are used in the community, and how it relates to health/ mental health.
And tonnes and tonnes of really really fun stuff.
So, basically, this is a very broad call for projects for the first issue, which will be at the end of January. You need to have new and innovative ideas for projects, how about spinning projects/patterns? Felted things? Come on people I know there are projects in you just dyeing to get out....
This will be a really be a great e-mag, and your chance to get published with your projects......
