Kimberly, you are everywhere these days, and I couldn’t be happier for you! My Spring 2011 issue of Interweave Crochet arrived today, complete with your Freesia Pullover.
So, once again, congratulations on having another of your designs featured. I am looking forward to crocheting this one (although considering the length of my “to be crocheted” list, it could be awhile!). Thank you for including, as Oprah might express it, us “women of size” in the pattern instructions. An XL often is a touch tighter than I’m comfortable with wearing.
Having read your blog from time to time, it is obvious you are a lovely, engaging, and incredibly self effacing woman. How wonderful it is to see such a nice person making her mark in a big way in the crochet and knitting world!
I am very sorry I haven’t responded to this earlier, but quite frankly I couldn’t come up with the right words to thank you.
Your note has made me so very happy, it will be one of the nicest gifts I will ever receive. I can read it when I am feeling low or when I need inspiration, or even when I get a nasty email.
Your note has touched me in such a way that I really am…… speechless (hard to do for a jersey girl like me!).
It makes me happy to know that there are still people out there that take the time to simply be……well, nice.
I will never forget your letter. Thank you-
I love Brenda!

I just noticed this morning that a new pattern of mine is now available! I LOVED making this little girl's tunic this past summer, it was quick and fun to do. I hope you enjoy the pattern.... it's FREE! When I was making this for the little girls, I thought you know, I would make this for me without the flowers and ruffle bottom and make it a dress - with simply soft it wouldn't cost a fortune and would look really cute with leggings and boots (and easy to clean). Stay tuned, I may get on that soon!

Chain Reaction is my newest self-published pattern. The idea came from the very talented and super-fly Meera of Knitknack (she is also the model). There is a Crochet-a-long starting at Knitknack tomorrow and I will be there to help with any questions and changes anyone wants to make.
