Hey Wandering.shop people I'd like to introduce myself... I am a craftsy person currently living in Berlin/Germany. I like to #knit #spin #cardweaving #handdye but generally love a lot of things ONE does with its hands. A lot of it is connected to my passion: reenecting western slavic life in the Time 1200a.c. this gives my great Joy and a lot opportunities to discover new stuff and handycrafts. From time to time I host the podcast:wollkotze I am looking forward to Meet New peeps
Yes, i started a pair of socks.
with honeycomb cables pattern(?).
I follow/orientate on a free pattern Asali Socks by Dawn Henderson.
but after 2 pattern repeats i already regretted all the 1by1 cabeling, so i use twisted stitches instead. That doesn't look so neat/different, but is much faster and more enjoyable.
Small press thread, long.
Now, Wendig doesn't touch on the reasons to avoid the big publishers.
There are some, definitely.
They have predatory contracts too, sometimes, and more lawyers on retainer to make the contract stick.
They may not be able to give you as much personal attention as a small publisher.
You may see a small publisher as a middle ground between self pub and trad pub -- you get more control without needing to do EVERYTHING yourself.
