The Man From Del Monte

Well actually it was the woman from Stitch 'n Bitch, but the answer's the same.

Debbie Stoller has just accepted one of my patterns for her next Stitch 'n Bitch book - a manual for more advanced techniques out next year. Can't say much more because I'm bouncing off the walls with excitement.


A huge thanks goes out to Nanatoo and Aurora for telling me ages ago to try and get my patterns published. I probably wouldn't have even submitted anything if it wasn't for you two encouraging me. Thank You!

Fantastic! May this be the first of many patterns you have published. I absolutely love your designs, so I expect this could work out quite well for you.

Thank you all so much. Your support really means a lot.

What I can say is that it's for a child and I really hope you like it. It's super cute, even if I do say so myself.

TG - you under estimate the Rainieness of this design. No short rows but a lot of craziness.

Zonda - I'll send you a post-it note to stick in the front ;)

DC - lol, it's all part of my plan for world domination ;)

Rachel - thanks, that means a lot.
