Tonight I got the email I've been hoping for....the pattern I submitted for Knitty's fall issue has been accepted! WOO HOO! I am having a hard time believing it....I didn't want to get my hopes up too high, but on the other hand I thought it had a good chance of at least catching Amy's eye, if nothing else. I suppose it's not written in stone yet, but the email said:
"You're in! Congratulations!" so I'm taking that as a YES!
I'm not giving away any details ahead of time, but look for "Bloom" in the next issue of Knitty. (OMG!)
UPDATE: My loving, thoughtful hubby had a beautiful bouquet of flowers sent to me today. When I told him the news last night, I didn't think he "got" how much this meant to me, but he must've been down-playing it so the flowers today would be more of a surprise. What a sweetie....
