yarn forward #28
Have you seen the September 2010 issue of Yarn Forward???
(yes, I KNOW it's only the middle of July... and YES... the SEPTEMBER issue IS out already)
Anyway... it features one of my knitting patterns!
I'm such a newbie to the world of print publication... and this is all so wildly EXCITING to me!!! The hard part though, is keeping it a secret until the magazine is published. It's months and months and months from the time a submission is accepted by the magazine, until it actually appears in print. And all that time, I have to keep it a secret from you guys!!!
Which is insanely difficult - because I've become quite accustomed to sharing my crafty exeriences with you. I tell you guys EVERYTHING!
Almost impossible to be designing... and drafting... and stitching... and photographing... and pattern writing... and NOT breathe a word about it to anyone.
All the while, I am totally ecstatic about it - and have no one to share the joy with. Mr Goldfish is a a gem, and he really tries to be supportive, but he just doesn't get the whole craft thing the way that you do.
Can't wait for my contributor copy to arrive...
Here's a preview of the magazine.
And here she is... my kokeshi doll...
