Spoiler Alert: Shameless Boasting Follows

Many exciting things have happened in my knit-knerdy world since my last post many moons ago. I will try to catch up on many of them here, and I’ll start with my biggest news: I am now, officially, a published designer! OK, so maybe I’m only self-published at this point, but let’s not split hairs. I have opened up a Ravelry Store, put up my first written pattern for sale, and I’ve even had a customer! I’m just tickled.

The path to here has been a little strange. It started with a persistent bee in my bonnet, buzzing repeatedly that Sammy had to have a sweater with a school bus. It’s true, his favorite sport is pointing and squealing at every bus that passes. I poked around Ravelry and didn’t see anything good enough. The next thing I knew, I was busting out the colored pencils and sketching an intarsia chart!

The rest, as they say, is history. I knit a 12-month size for Sammy, wrote up the pattern, started a test knit, knit a 2T size sweater, opened a Ravelry store, wrote a proposal, and submitted to the Knit Picks IDP! Keep your fingers crossed for me.

And you can even buy the pattern right now! How nifty is that?


  1. Congratulations on your accomplishment. It's good to see you posting again.

  2. Congratulations Ms. Published Designer. Hope you make a lot of sales. Sammy's sweater looks awesome.
