Today

This is my very first blog ever, and I am very thankful to my friend Faina for her help to get this set up. For those who know me I just try to peacefully co-exist with technology; I am always very grateful for those who can help me navigate through the cyber-world.

I have a new design that is in the current Vogue Knitting Magazine, pattern #30. I have had many of my designs published, however this is my first major magazine publication. Yeah!!!! When I first learned to knit my hope and inspiration was to be able to know how to knit well enough to knit a Vogue Knitting Pattern and now I have one of my own designs in a Vogue Knitting Magazine. What a dream come true. Please check it out. It is using a luxurious hand-dyed Bamboo tape yarn "Banyan" from Colinette. I made a 2nd tank using the Bamboo tape yarn "Splash" from Universal Yarns it works nicely as a substitute for the original yarn.

Today I was able to finish another project for Crystal Palace Yarns. It is a big girl version of the Bunny Hop Baby Ruffled Pullover. This has been a very popular baby sweater and there have been many requests for larger sizes. So Susan at CPY has responded to those requests and will soon have the new version on her website at www.straw.com. A big thanks to Susan.

I will post a photo and link when all is done in the technical arena. All the patterns at CPY are free, and look the best when made using CPY yarn.

Faina and I are awaiting the preview copy of our new book. It is off to the printer's by the 17th of this month, so we should see it soon.

Congratulations on the book, the Vogue pattern and your new blog. I'm the one that always orders yarn for the Chico State math group.
