Oh, gosh. It has not seriously been a month since my last post?!?
Yes it has.
Here's what's been happening. I submitted quite a few designs to Creative Knitting magazine, and also one to Yarn magazine, which is Australia based.
I also submitted designs to the Sanguine Gryphon, a hand dyed yarn website.
Guess what !
They all accepted my designs !!!
Creative accepted TWO of them!
That's in addtion to the 3 Irish Girls who had already accepted 2 of my patterns.
I am incredibly thrilled and grateful that they appreciate my design efforts.
Can you guess what's coming next?
Yes -- I have to knit and write patterns for a total of 6 items - 4 of them sweaters - in 6-8 weeks.
(takes deep breaths).
I am not an especially fast knitter - I never needed to be fast so I didn't worry about it.
Based on my rough estimates, I think I may need to knit between 8 and 10 hours a day for the next 6 weeks. Maybe I'll get faster as time goes on. Maybe my estimates are off.
Anyway, wish me luck. I will be needing it.
Any helpful suggestions are welcome.
