Hi all ,the excitement is just not stopping this week. I was walking in the village yesterday, and one of my student's came running up to me, big smile on her face, telling me that she was so proud of herself for recognizing my work. Seems she received her new issue of Creative Knitting, saw a bag, said to herself "that looks like Margaret's work", then was thrilled when she was right. I did not even know what issue my work was appearing in, of course she did not have it with her, so I never got to see it yet. This one is on free form knitting, and I did an article to go along with the bag. Now I cannot wait to see how it turned out.
A funny thing has happened over the past five years. I always did both knitting and crochet, but most of my early designs were mainly knitting. My first books were about half and half, then I don't know when it happened, but everyone began asking for crochet designs instead of knitting. Now people ask "Oh do you knit also?"
Yes, I do knit, and I have done several knit designs for Jean and Rita's new books (Creative Partners, Ltd.), now for Creative Knitting, and I will be doing more of both in the very near future.
Have a good evening
