This year, TWENTY THREE of my designs were published, and there are more that will be revealed next year! Holy moly. No wonder I’m tired – if I ever complain about not being productive enough, kick me will ya?
This was the first year I’ve really done a lot of projects with yarn companies, and even a magazine. At the beginning of the year I decided it was high time I pushed a little harder with third party submissions, and I think it paid off quite nicely. I’ve had a lovely time working with Mari and Stef at Stitchcraft Marketing to hook up with yarn companies looking for patterns.
With Harrisville Designs, I released the Westley Cardigan (keep an eye out for a KAL in the new year – once gift knitting is all done!) and a trio of accessory patterns for their new TURBINE bulky: Corrugated Rib Hat, Purl Dot Mittens, and Waving Rib Scarf.
With Feel Good Yarn Company, I designed their first 3 sweaters! Bellwood and Ayden are worked in SilverSpun Sport, and Claremont in SilverSpun Sock (check out this one from Wendy Knits!). Yarn kits are available at a discount!
On the self-publishing side, I did my very first Knitalong! There were prizes and everything. I worked up a Just Enough Ruffles Light in a fun Mountain Colours gradient set.
And although it took me a little longer than I anticipated, I also released a collection of wrap sweaters (and a cowl) this fall, titled Edgewood.
That isn’t quite everything, but it’s enough! My patterns are all available in my Ravelry shop. I already have 6 deadline projects lined up for the next few months, so 2016 is shaping up to be pretty busy!
Are you done your holiday knitting? I sort of am, with one project currently on the needles for a post-holidays gift (not too fussed about the deadline). Plus I have a lot of knitting that I’d like to accomplish on holiday vacation – I always think I can warp time to knit ALL THE THINGS even if it’s just a few days!
Thank you all so much for reading, visiting and knitting my patterns! I am so grateful for all your support. Happy (and Knitterly) Holidays and New Year!
