Caron International (maker of Simply Soft, Bliss, SPA, and Country yarns) has commissioned me to design for TWO Leisure Arts books which will likely hit the shelves in 2010. Buy their yarn - they are the BEST to work for. They always give me name credit, plenty of time and yarn to work with...and in this economic downturn - Caron yarn is AFFORDABLE!
No pictures for this post...
I will also have a picture of a hat design in Annie Modesitt's compilation book "1000 Fabulous Knit Hats" which will be released in 2010.
These publications work to give me the credibility I need as a designer to pursue authoring my own book, a lifetime goal.
In the meantime, my Etsy/Ravelry pattern sales (self published) are doing well - I'm a happy girl.
