Simply Knitting

My copy of Simply Knitting arrived yesterday and it dawned on me why I was so busy last month. I'm so excited as I have two patterns, an article and a yarn featured in the magazine! Yippee! Seeing my work in print makes all those nights knitting away into the wee small hours completely worthwhile. Pete has, of course, summarised it much more eloquently than I ever could, so if you are curious to find out more, check out his news story back at the shop http://www.dtcrafts.co.uk/news/archive/2008/2008-01-01.html

As a treat, I rewarded myself with a full day dyeing yesterday (no, not a typo, actually getting out my yarn and dyes and putting colour to skein!). It was bliss! My latest project is toe-up socks so I was cooking up some new shades to show off a couple of new designs I've got whizzing around my head. Will post a couple of mini-pics later (if I can find the camera).

It's great to see a friend in the magazine when I get it through the post. It's fantastic that you are getting recognition for great yarn and great designs.

That's really lovely of you to say so - thanks. I still get really giddy when I see myself in print - I wonder if famous designers are the same or does the excitement go out of it?

Congrats on your continuing great SK series...

A whole day's dyeing - bliss!
