Interweave Knits!

I realize that I have been a little absent for a while. Soaking in the beautiful changes leading to spring, has been my focus. More about being quiet and observant, than formulating thoughts to expound upon.

It could also be that I unearthed the pieces of a printed and cut jersey dress that I have decided that I really want to take to my trip to Berkeley this weekend. My trip to meet the Alabama Chanin team at the Edible Schoolyard in Berkeley, is finally here. So there has been lots of sewing and cutting. It was originally cut and stenciled about 6 months ago, without the rib. 

I am hoping to be done with all four panels tonight for the reverse applique. Leaving just assembling the pieces and cutting and attaching the rib. More photos to come...


But the real excitement of this post, you may remember months ago, I submitted to Interweave Knits. Randomly, I had the yarn and pattern idea that worked perfectly (in my opinion) with their Fine Fisherman motif for Winter 2014/15. It is my first submission to a major knitting magazine. Today, the email came - Lisa Shroyer, IK editor, is interested in one of my designs! For full disclosure, the design with a little modification. Thrilled. Excited. Honored. Sorry not to have any photos to go with this exciting news... You will have to wait until the magazine is published, there will not even be teasers. Still pinching myself, nervous about making sure that I meet all the guidelines, deadlines and can answer all their questions. You gotta jump in somewhere, so here I am. Off to float through the rest of my day and probably my week, dreaming of knitting...
