I'm published!

This right here?...this little screen shot you see here on the left?...this is my blanket, on a model, on a pattern, on Cascade Yarn's official website!  I'm officially published and this baby is live, and available for free download.  You can get it right there on Cascades free patterns page under "Eco Wool", and I've created a pattern page on Ravelry as well. 

Let me just say, I've gotten some fantastic news today.  First, I came home from class to find a bag of sample yarns from Cascade sitting at my door, and I opened it to find a skein of Covington, Jewel, and Lana Bambu.  I know exactly what I'm going to do with these too.  Then, I checked my email and saw that they loved the pattern that I sent to them (the one that was rejected by another publisher) and they're sending me the yarn to knit that one up...so I'll have two patterns with Cascade in a matter of weeks.  Lastly, I checked their website to look at the colors for this upcoming pattern, and that's when I found that my blanket was published.  The photos are stunning!  And it's totally surreal to see a model wearing a blanket that lived in my apartment for months.  The blanket in the photos was knit by me.  Ever single last stitch.  And I blocked it out on my very own bed.  So, if you were interested in this pattern, it's now available and you should go download it.  After all...it's free!

Oh, and one more thing.  Assuming I pass the background check, I'll be teaching some knitting classes at Jo-Ann's fabrics in North Attleboro, in addition to those that I already teach at Bella Yarns.  These are all good things, because I'll have two kids starting school in the fall instead of one...which means twice the back-to-school shopping. 

Now, I'm off to knit a chemo-cap for my mom's friend.  There might be a pattern from it, if I like how it comes out.


  1. This is so awesome! I am so proud of you! You've worked so hard and you're making a career out of your passion, which is amazing.

    Will you be at church Sunday? I have a bunch of things I want to show you PLUS the hat I knitted for you ages ago.

  2. Congrats! This is amazing news...your skill and determination payed off...
