It has been kind of busy around here.
Late last fall I met a yarn distributor's rep at my LYS. He was admiring my displayed pattern "Martie" and asked if I would be interested in submitting a design idea for commercial publication for a yarn line he represents. Would I? Seriously? YES! The yarn line was having an open call for pattern ideas to include with their yarn launch for fall/winter 2014. I sketched an idea, swatched the pattern stitch, and sent off my first-ever commercial proposal.
While waiting to hear from them, I went on-line to see who else may be looking for submissions and found two knitting magazines with proposal deadlines fast approaching for their fall/winter issues. I quickly developed proposals and sent them in.
So where will you see these designs? Sorry, all must be kept secret until publication in the fall, no names, pictures or particulars allowed. I will surely let you know they come out.
Tonight, a big martini is in order! The dusting can wait 'till tomorrow.
