Delayed “Woot, woot!”

My original intention was to blog about this sooner, but life got in the way. Oh, well. Last week I received my designer’s copy of knit.wear Spring 2013:

Plus, funnily enough, four additional covers and extra copies of my pattern (the Die Cut Vest) and article (On Design: Handkerchief Hems). For those of you who haven’t seen the magazine yet, the article is on the construction of handkerchief hems – both traditional and modern adaptations – and how to insert them into knitwear.  I hope people find it useful!

Also, I’d like to give a big shout-out to Opus, who helped me complete the article by the deadline by knitting the swatches while I freaked out about sketches, schematics, and everything in between. Big thanks to her for helping me stay sane.

Next time will be easier, now that I’ve run the gauntlet.

Or so I tell myself.

In other {BIG} news, Bridgetown is now officially available.

It’s been killing me not to talk about it.  Working on it was an epic project, what with 27 patterns to photograph and format (94 pages, all told!).  But it all got done and I’m supremely pleased with myself and the Crawl.  I feel like we did a fantastic job and am not ashamed to say it :)

Lastly, I’m currently working on catching up on Rose City Knits designs, the website, and couple of other projects.  Expect to see some self-published pieces in the coming weeks.  Opus (among others, though she’s the most vocal) has been on my case, so I’m trying very, very hard to get caught up.  I have over a dozen designs that just need to be written up and sent to my tech editor.  Oy.  Wish me luck!
