Fall Knitty is ON!

THE NEW KNITTY IS LIVE!

Check out my Back To School washcloth patterns, won't you?

My first published pattern!

Can't.... contain.... myself..... calm down. OK.

Now I have to sit at my desk job all day and pretend this isn't a big deal.

Co-worker: why are you smiling?
Me: My first pattern was published on knitty.
Co-worker: what?
Me: Um, It's bagel day.
Co-worker: yeah.

What a cute idea - it makes me wish I had a college student to knit for (my girls have been out of college for a while, none of my nieces or nephews went & my grandkids are just preschoolers).

Longhorn Diva said...

My favorite entry to the new Knitty; they are really clever.
Congratulations to you!

Nano said...

Great Pattern! I just started knitting dishtowels. This puts a whole new spin on the towel thing... I'm thinking wash cloths with all sorts of subliminal messages. Heh...

sopranospinner said...

Congratulations! And it's in a good issue, too, lots of traffic! The patterns look really fun (wish I had time for dishcloths but not right now...)

Nice to get some good news today.

carrie said...

Carrie said...

Genius! I adore these!!!

Congratulations on being published!

Eleni said...

Congrats on your first pattern ending up on Knitty! Also, this rocks, because my cousin just went away to school, and since I am addicted to washcloths, she is going to be one lucky girl! Rock on!

Weaver Brewer & Fam said...

Now that you're famous (and rightly so) try not to forget us "old" commentors ;)

Congrats on the pattern! (maybe I'll finally teach myself to knit so I can make some) They look really cool!

Christine said...

They are FABULOUS! I actually want to make washcloths now. (Especially since I should be studying instead of knitting, but you know how it is...)

Hi! I don't know you but I recently saw your dishcloth patterns in the new Knitty. THEY ARE SO AWESOME!!

I'm a seasoned University student (4th/last year, yay!) but a new knitter as of August and I must say that your pattern is my favourite out of the whole issue! I really am on a student budget but I'm so addicted to knitting, and I think your dishcloth patterns are so so awesome. I love that the stitch patterns get increasingly difficult, and the fun colours and yay for cheap cotton yarn and just...

I'm already planning to go to my LYS buy craploads of cheap cotton yarn and CAST ON!

Thank-youuuu for thinking of such a cool pattern. XDXD

ginaveee said...

I really like your washcloths, too. sorry that some of the knitting was so hard! (hope the surgery (?) went ok.)
