HUGE Month

September is always a big month for me, my children head back to school, scheduling starts and my birthday is in September. This year is a B I G one for me, and to be totally honest? I'm not liking it. I know it's just a number and I know you are as old as you feel, but the only thing I can think of when I think of this birthday is another word that starts with F!!

A bit of sweet news for me is that this month in my 40Th year..... my work appears in 3 different magazines and two different medias.

Let the self promotion begin!

In Crochet! magazine, my Circle Vest (for Caron International) is the Editor's Choice!! I crocheted this version while skiing in Vermont and staying with our good friends... Deanne that's you!

In Knit 'n Style magazine, my Ribbed Slit Shawl (for Coats & Clark) is my first published knitting design in a magazine. I have designed knit patterns for a long time... they are just starting to be published. The magazine has 7 pictures of the shawl- all different ways to wear the wrap.... I am blown away! Patty, I was making this at your house in January.

The last is not really IN the magazine, but it's in an add on the back cover. It's the sweater I did for Debbie Stoller and seems to be a big hit on Ravelry. I love this sweater and I designed it while on vacation in the Dominican Republic this year.

End Self Promotion - but I am smiling!
