Excited to be able to share the news that I’m one of the winners of the ‘New Designer’ category of Knit Now Magazine’s ‘Knitter of the Year’ competition! Details of all the winners are in this month’s issue (issue 70) – but haven’t managed to get a copy yet though 🙁
It was a great surprise to receive an email telling me that I am one of the winners and I’m looking forward to seeing my pattern in the magazine 🙂
For now, here’s a sneaky glimpse of my design – you’ll have to wait until the pattern is published to see the complete item!
January 5th already – eeek! Everyone seems to be busy setting goals and making plans for the year. I’m working on a few plans of my own – the first involves crochet and making videos. You’ll have to wait a bit longer to find out more but here’s a cute photo in the meantime 😉
Andrew & I had fun with some yarn dyeing before Christmas and we have plans to do lots more this year. I still can’t decide what to make with this skein – it will probably be socks.
Last year I successfully completed both of Joeli’s tech editing courses and started taking on a few clients. I’m looking forward to doing a lot more tech editing this year. I have plenty of availability at the moment (I edit both knitting and crochet patterns). You can find out more on my tech editing page.
One of my goals for this year is to do more designing. I have recently submitted a design to a magazine (waiting to hear the outcome) and I’ve got a couple of things which should be ready to publish in the next month or so. I’ve got lots of ideas – I just wish I could knit faster (or in my sleep maybe?!) I’m quicker at crochet so maybe I should work on my crochet designs first!
I’m also hoping to run a few workshops later in the year. I think I’ve found a suitable venue 🙂 I just need to decide on some dates and which workshop(s) to run. Knitting toe-up socks is likely to be high on the list.
If you want to stay in touch, please sign up for my newsletter. I promise not to send you an email every day – or even every week! I might send you something once a month or so – when I have news to share 🙂
