Yesterday I told you that Creative Knitting magazine editor Kara Gott Warner is starting a series of posts here at About.com Knitting, and you are definitely going to want to sit down with the beverage of your choice and take some time with this one.
Her first installment is all about how to present a design idea for submission to a magazine and the five things you need to think about when preparing your submission: sketch, swatch, schematic, skill and story.
She's even showing off an example of a design that's going to be published in an upcoming special interest publication, and it's a beauty.
Check it out and let me know if this changes your mind about wanting to submit for publication (or maybe gives you new respect for the hard work designers do to get published?). Thanks again Kara!
