I’m very excited to finally tell you all that I’ve been published!
I was asked to interview the featured designer for the Winter 2011 issue of Knitscene magazine. I had a great time doing the interview and writing up the profile. Alexis designed the Figurehead shawl, which I mention starting in the article. I love her designs in the issue, in particular a really neat sweater dress. I recommend checking it out!
I have long harbored a secret dream of writing for publication, and I’m hoping this is the first of many opportunities.
My other news? I’m going back to school!
Due to several issues, I left college with one class remaining for my degree. Yes… I am that person. I’ve finally decided that now is the time to finish what I started, so I will be taking my last class and graduating in the spring. I have felt ashamed for years that I didn’t graduate, so embarrassed that I avoided dealing with the problem for years. I have several friends who have been instrumental in convincing me that this is where I need to be, and I am very grateful they are in my life!
I had planned to work on getting my sewing room back together this weekend, but I traveled to sing a wedding instead. I’m hoping to get things in place, because I’m really feeling the itch to make something! I’ve been knitting on my Kirra sweater, but it’s slow going and a lot of waffle stitch. I hope to finish soon, because I keep imagining what to wear it with. Not to mention, it’s been cold, and I’m ready for some sweaters! .
I hope you are all having a lovely weekend, with more crafting that I have managed!
