Hello One and All!!!!
Sorry to have been away so long! My goodness, let's just say I've had many health issues going on this year, so much so that I've done very little blogging and knitting! I am extremely happy to report that even though I spent a couple of days in ICU with the docs thinking I'd had a heart attack that tests showed I didn't - PRAISE GOD!!! It was a bit hinky because the stress test showed I'd had one and then the cardiac cath showed all is well with my heart - THANK YOU, GOD! And then there were other health issues that have gone on, but I won't bore you with that!
I will share some VERY EXCITING news with you! I am HONORED, STUNNED, & EXCITED about this....the 2009 Knitting Pattern a Day Calendar has some of my designs AND I won THIRD PLACE with my Christmas Flapper Socks HOW COOL IS THAT?! I am absolutely floored that I won 3rd place, it's INCREDIBLE!
Okay, on to MORE EXCITING NEWS! My fave yarn company, SWTC has a new book coming out in Dec., "Socks A La Carte" (you can read about it on Jonelle's and Kat's blogs). I HAVE A PATTERN IN THE BOOK!!!! Well, a sock "leg" pattern (Twist and Shout is the name). This book is going to be a big hit, you can choose from different cuffs, legs, heels, toes, etc. to build your own sock! AND, you can hop on over to Amazon to pre-order it!! OKAY, IS THAT EXTREMELY EXCITING OR WHAT?!!!
Even though I've been away for a while and not even done any knitting these honors have actually inspired to return! I've written a couple of patterns - now I need to put needles to yarn - wish me luck!!!
FYI, sorry about lack of photos, my camera is on its way to Sony to get the flash repaired!
I'VE MISSED YOU ALL
