I checked their FAQ's and saw this, so almost. . .

Q. How often is Knitty published?
A. We publish four times a year. September, December, April, July -- as close to the beginning of the month as possible.

http://www.knitty.com

It's an online magazine. Anything online that can be seen or read is "published" to a certain extent. Because everyone can view it.

but I dont know if you were being sarcastic... :XX:

I miss me some thrills. Come on knitty...bring on some more projects I love but never get around to knitting! I could just stare for days... and print.. :shock:

It could be any time in the first week of April. Of course, I'm hoping for the first, bright and early!

Hopefully no April's Fool's Jokes will be involved (such as changing the front page picture but not uploading any of the patterns!)

Ok.. so i was doing some research and i realized that two of the Knitty crew have a new book coming out...

Big Girl Knits (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0307336603/102-5104883-5737758?v=glance&n=283155) hits the shelves on April 18th.

So perhaps they're busy with it - ?? Book signing tours, spa visits, all the perks of celebrity....??

dunno....

I got an email about this from my local yahoo group:
To: knittycontributors@yahoogroups.com
From: "Amy R Singer" <amy@knitty.com>
Date: Thu, 30 Mar 2006 15:36:05 -0000
Subject: [knittycontributors] Call for submissions: Big Girl Knits 2



Have you seen the rave reviews for Big Girl Knits? Several major knitting
magazines are proclaiming it a very welcome addition to the knitting book
world…they love it. It makes us very happy.

Our publisher, Potter Craft [a.k.a Random House], has asked us to write a
2nd Big Girl Knits. We can't wait!

This time around, we're getting big with color and texture. Here's a snapshot:
Building on the B3 system (Boob, Belly, Butt), we'll review how to choose or
create knitwear that fits well and looks great. We'll show Big Girl knitters how
to use color and texture in a way that looks fab on them (hint: less is more).
We'll teach how to adapt patterns that have color and texture using side
panels, and how to wrap their brain around the math for motif repeats, use
decorative decreases, and have a refresher on short rows.

For this book, our definitions:
Color = stripes, including self-striping yarn, color blocks, motif work [Fair Isle,
intarsia, mosaic, and embroidery]
Texture = ribs, lace, cables, twisted stitches

We're looking for garments for women sized 14-24 (chest measurements from
40-54" with no ease) that are flattering, not dumpy.

And since not every size 20 woman has the same physical attributes as every
other, we need designs to flatter each of the different types of big girl body
shapes.

Key points to think about as you work on your designs:
- all designs must have an element of color or texture (or both)
- all designs must be sized from 14 to 24 (we will provide a standard
set of measurements based on industry standards)
- each design must be customizable in some way to accommodate the
differences in body type, focusing on boobs, belly and butt as the
three major areas to flatter [for example, adjustable short rows for
busts, adjustable number of pattern repeats, additional pieces where
required]
- yarn must not be heavier than 4sts/in for garments
- no rectangles; no drop shoulders
- think shaping!
- think vertical -- not necessarily vertical lines, but perhaps the
suggestion of vertical with motifs, patterns, colorblocks, diagonals
that are more vertical than hortizontal, or simply the absence of
horizontals.
- think combinations of texture features to create flattering silhouettes
- selective placement of ribbed panels or color or areas of lace can be very
flattering, which is what we mean by less is more…a lace sweater doesn't
need to be 100% lace

We're looking for sweaters, vests, jackets, coats, wraps, socks, skirts,
gloves, mittens, even knitted jewelry, all designed for curvaceous women
who enjoy standing out and showing off their best assets. As with BGK1, this
book is for intermediate knitters and above.

Submission details:
- Submission deadline: April 14, 2006
- Submission ingredients for each design: full sketch of the item,
including design features, customizable areas and techniques used and
what area[s] of the bigger body it is meant to suit; photograph of one
swatch, with yarn details noted as per the Knitty submission guidelines
[http://knitty.com/subguide.html]; your contact information and a very
brief design resume [for unpublished designers, this means links to
good photographs of your finished work]

Yarn will be provided; this may require you to tweak your design to
accommodate, because all designs are subject to our publisher's approval.
Please specify commercially available current yarns in your submission.

Though we don't have a final schedule in place at this time, we anticipate that
the production of the knitted samples must be complete by September 1,
2006, and that you will receive yarn by June 15, 2006.

Compensation will be discussed with each designer individually. Designers will
also receive one copy of the book.

Each designer will be instructed to knit a specific size so their sample will fit
one of our professional Big Girl models for photography.

Samples will be returned to the designer once the book's trunk show is
complete [approximately 12 months after publication, which is currently
planned for Spring 2008].

One important note: you need not be a Big Girl yourself (or even a girl!) to
submit designs to this book. All we ask is that you understand the variety of
ways bigger female bodies are shaped and what makes them look their best.
Jillian and Amy are both big girls themselves and take this project very
seriously.

Early reader reaction to the first book has reinforced our belief that Big Girl
knitters want this kind of design and style information…and this 2nd book will
give them more of what they want.

Please send your submission(s) to this address by April 14th:
thegirls@biggirlknits.com

Do share this call for submissions with anyone who may be interested. We
can't wait to see what you come up with!

Biggest, best regards,
Amy & Jillian

I did? :?? That's news to me! Is this one of those "which Amy are we speaking of?" kinds of things? Perhaps some other Amy has news of the new Knitty?

I do have news about the theme of the new Knitty, it's going to be about "extremities", like feet, hands, and such things. I have a pattern for a beaded anklet (with a hidden little purse in it!) that I almost submitted to that issue, but instead will be publishing here, soon hopefully!

Ingrid, you are too funny! :roflhard: Love the disguise, and even better, the true identity. It's actually quite appropriate I'd say! :thumbsup:

Did I ever tell y'all that there were 7 Amy's among my high school friends, and in fact my best friend from 4th grade through high school was named Amy. I should be used to this by now, but it still throws me for a loop sometimes. :lol:

Oh yeah, and my maiden name was Johnson. 4 Amy Johnson's went to my college at the same time as me. :rollseyes: Glad to at least have a less common last name now!

My legal name is Aimie. It's pronounced the same way, but spelled like my mom did too much marijuana in the 70s (even though I believe she didn't do any). No one, ever, ever, has not spelled it wrong at least once (including me). However, when the school I go to can't spell it right after I've been there for FOUR YEARS, I get a little angry. It's not a hard word to spell, you just have to pay attention.

ayla, my nickname, is much easier to spell because it's wierd, and so people pay attention instead of assuming they know how to spell it already. Many times I've just used that name. When I have to use my legal name, especially over the phone, I say "my first name is A-I-M-I-E". :rollseyes: people.
