This amazingness arrived in my mailbox yesterday. Yep. That's my pattern in the new Knitscene. I squealed pretty loud... might have scared the neighbors.
This is the Ouverte Tee from the Summer Knitscene. It's part of the dance story that grew out of a geometric call for submissions. I lurves the way they modeled it- and that it's the cover pattern for the story. :) I intended it to be a layering piece, so I love the way they showed it over a dance outfit. I think that I would be less bold and layer it over a cami, but I sure love the blue. And that hairstyle. Bold.
This is my second print magazine publication (the first was Coronis in Pompom Quarterly last fall.) It's the most amazing feeling to see my work and name in print. Addicting, one might say. Must. Have. More. Subs. Accepted.
It's a long process, publishing in a magazine. I submitted this idea last summer- maybe in June? It was accepted at the very beginning of August- I remember because my issue of PPQ came out the very same day. That was a darn good day. I got the yarn in late August, sent the sample to the magazine in late September, then just waited. Lots of waiting. I think we did tech editing in January, then I got to see the pattern laid out in the magazine in maybe early March, and now- it's really real. Squee!! I can't wait until projects start popping up on Ravelry.
