Secret Knitting…..

This year has been one of doing more ‘secret’ projects than self-published ones for me. I’ve been fortunate to have several submissions accepted. While knitting for publishers is fun & rewarding-I can’t share any details about the projects until the publisher releases the book/mag/pattern. I can share some teaser photos-no details-though! So here are a […]

Well, here we are-over a month since my last post…

where does the time go? It has been a pretty busy month so I guess that’s the answer. So what have I been up to…let’s see…… I’m taking Shannon Okey‘s online Designer class, which is great! We started with style sheets and I now have a beautiful new one. The first pattern to be published […]

Say hello to………

Aztec, Woodland Rose Tunic and Shazzam! – all three are my designs in the newly released book “Circular Knitting Redefined – Leave Those Straight Needles Behind” by House of White Birches. And making this book really special for me is not only having three designs included, but Aztec made the cover! Here’s DRG’s (parent company […]

What a month…..

this December has turned out to be! Busy, fun, exciting, frustrating, cold and beautiful. Most of my energy this month, and DH’s, went toward finding that happy middle ground between tempering my SIL’s enthusiasm for Christmas and while celebrating it. This year has been one of learning how to live with a developmentally disabled person […]

Moving on with life…..

and focusing on other things is making my soul happy. Of course, I do have to get past the lastest ‘issue’ with my broken foot. I had wanted to post this wonderfully happy report of getting the last four pins out this past Monday….but….as it turned out….one of the pins did not want to come […]

Wow, has time flown by…………

I can hardly believe it’s been a month since my last post! But then, I’ve been knitting my fingers off and busy with life in general. Where to start….well, back in March I told you about the projects DRG Publications accepted. With three to have done by May 7th I haven’t been working on any […]

Friday the 13th unlucky – NOPE!

This past Friday was one of the luckiest days for me – another lucky Friday the 13th was the day Prilly’s pups were born. Anyhow, I got home from work to find a phone message from an editor to whom I had sent some submissions. Imagine me falling on the floor as I hear that […]

Wonderful day…………….

I just have to tell you what a wonderful day I had yesterday. First, I receive that call anyone who has submitted a design for publication waits for. YEAH – one of my designs has been accepted by a publisher!! This is something I’ve been working for and the feeling of being accepted is indescribable. […]
