It's been an early morning for us. I've already taken Cory to work and come back. (He has Friday through the end of the year off work, so he has a few things to wrap up in the next couple of days.)

I got my grades back from the term. A's in everything except Accounting. I knew that was going to happen, but I didn't think I'd get as high as a B in that class. Woo. I was worried.

My cat'o'nine tails was accepted into the Anticraft book. So far it's not as professional as the Interweave book that I have a pattern in, but that's OK. It's exposure, and I'm not particularly attached to the pattern in the first place, as I kind of crocheted it on a lark. That and I get a third of the amount of money I get for the Interweave book.

Chinese food for breakfast gets my stamp of approval.

And now I shall go upstairs and begin straightening my hair.

Interweave and Soho are the best paying pattern publishers out there. And yes, they are also the most established and most professional of all the craft publishers out there.

But doing smaller stuff can be good for the long term -- not just for promotion, but for networking. Even though I sorta rue my involvement with Crochet Me, I don't *really* because that's how I met Skamama and Shannon Okey.

The Anticraft book is through North Light Books, which I haven't heard of before (though that doesn't mean anything because I don't pay much attention to names of publishing companies). I'm glad to be able to contribute something little if it'll help them out, especially since it's good to get a little more publicity.

OMG -- North Light is a division of F+W -- the same division that is publishing me!

Whoops, posted too quickly. I was going to say I'm glad I'm not doing anything with them besides contributing a piddly little pattern!
