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?
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.
