INCREDIBLY EXCITING NEWS!!!!!!!!

HEY knitty (and all other) people!!

You may recall a previous post in which I mentioned some of my "stealth" projects. Particularly, those involving Storey Publishing.

Okay....maybe you don't recall, I'll tell ya! Okay, Storey Publishing is known in the knitty world for the One-Skein series of books (as well as a wealth of wonderful books), those being:
, then came , and next

Well, Storey had a contest for another book! IMHO, the best one yet, one in which the one-skein is none other than SOCK YARN! And we all know that sock yarn comes in all sorts of wonderful skeins!

Sorry, BRB...Okay, I'm back....considering the fact that I was chatting about sock yarn (yes, an obsession, a big one, I admit!) I just had to step away because I had an overwhelming desire to go through a couple of my bins (yes, I said BINS!) of sock yarn for a bit of luxury and fondling of yummilicious yarn....I then had to stop and sketch a bit on knitters graph paper because I got an idea for a new sock pattern. Like I said...obsession!

Oh....oh yeah, about Storey Publishing and the one-skein sock yarn contest for the new book, sorry, I was lost in the land of sock yarn (come on, you know exactly what I mean, you love you some sock yarn, too!).

You know that I submitted 3 designs for consideration for the new book, right?!


Well, we were supposed to hear in June if our designs were or were not accepted.




I received an email on June 30.

Guess What........











TWO OF MY DESIGNS WERE CHOSEN AND WILL BE PUBLISHED IN THE NEW BOOK!!!






I gotta tell ya, I experienced (and still am!) a wave of emotions!








SHOCK

Jumping for Joy




HAPPY DANCIN'


all over the place...




I'm talking all sorts of happy dancing going on.....

Like I said.... HAPPY DANCIN'
