I still design shawls and wraps on a basically constant basis, but I’ve been doing more and more garments for publication. I’m in the crazy throes of finishing two sweaters right now for spring magazines, and I’ve had a few sweaters come out for this fall. I need to blog about all of the them, but we’ll start with Morganite.
I’ve never designed for Pom Pom Quarterly before, but when I found out my good friend Ruth of Rock ‘N Purl was my tech editor for this piece, I knew I’d made a very good decision. So I did my thing, I designed the sweater, got it knit up, and sent it across the pond as it were. And then yesterday I got to see the pictures!
I am in love with all of it! Yes I know I designed it so I shouldn’t be so surprised, but really! The styling, the drop dead gorgeous model, the way the photographer made the yarn just sing… Love it! (And the model even tweeted about loving my sweater – squee!)
You can pre-order the digital and print version of Pom Pom Quarterly here – 8 gorgeous patterns! They do a neat thing where you get a print copy and a Ravelry download of the patterns, so you can keep it safe in your Ravelry library and access it anywhere. You can also peruse some of the amazing back issues of Pom Pom on the site.
I have to say, it’s been such a great experience working with them, I will definitely be submitting to Pom Pom Quarterly again!
