Sneak Peek

Listen, darlings. I'm up to my beaky Arab nose in work at the moment in a desperate race against time and the rent, so no long harangues or meandering perusals today. But I thought that if perhaps your Monday, where you are, is as drab and dingy as my Monday, is where I am, you might like to have a look at a nearly complete project-in-progress.

I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I'm enjoying putting it together. It's a wall calendar, and it combines three of my very favorite things. Photography, yarn and...

No. Why try to explain in words when pictures will be far more eloquent?

Calendar Preview

90% of the ladies and at least 10% of the gentlemen, I give you Guys with Yarn: The 2009 Calendar. If it takes off (you should pardon the expression) I'll consider a feminine companion (Gals with Needles?) for the remaining percentages for 2010; but in beginning I felt it best to stand on personal terra firma.

I plan to have the calendar for sale by October. It will not only feature fine yarns in a splendid setting (a Chicago historic landmark, the Henry Rohkam House) but will have a host of yarn-centric festivals, holidays and historical dates pre-marked for your convenience.

Wholesale inquiries are welcome (portraits at franklinhabit daht cahm). Gentlemen's phone numbers, however, will not be given out. I promised.
