Floored, Linoleum Floored



I am floored.

One of my SNB buds, Ellen of L.A. Is My Beat (FABULOUS blog that I highly recommend, btw), left me a voicemail last Saturday, which I didn't listen to until yesterday due to self-imposed hermit status (don't ask...long, sordid and ultimately LAME) about a certain someone's blog (yours truly) having been mentioned in the current issue of Vogue Knitting's Knit 1 magazine.

I almost dropped the phone. Are you kidding me???

Apparently not. And not only did author, Kim Piper Werker of Crochetme fame, mention moi, but she also mentioned Jessica's brainchild, Amigurumi-Along and Roxy Craft!

All I have to say to Kim is, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!

And if this news wasn't enough to send me into outer orbit, Linda Scharf of CrochetLab fame wrote a very interesting article for Supernaturale about the vibrancy of today's crochet where she also mentions moi, Amigurumi-Along and Camilla Engman among others. How cool is that???

I am stunned AND floored or stunned on the floor. Anyway, you get my drift.

Thanks to everyone who purchased the Jellyfish pattern! I am so excited! Next pattern will be a freebie and I hope to have it done this weekend. Wooo Hooo!

Stay tuned.

Just promise me you won't do the funfur sweater on the cover! I *love* your jellyfish. Any way I can buy a pattern converted to knit? I love all your monsters, but crochet hurts the RSI too much. :(

Your work is very inspiring and so creative. It is unlike anything I have seen. You make crochet look like fun for the novice and the not so novice. Congratulations and may you Live Long and Prosper too!!!

Well, pick yourself up and dust yourself off because you deserve a mention in a Vogue mag. Well done!

I love that word 'lame' - Thomas uses it all the time with such expression that I know exactly what it means.

Ellen's blog is fantastic, by the way, thanks for the link.

I'll be back to purchase the JF pattern after the Olympics conclude. There's no way I can pass it up. Plus, it gives me a great project for some "moonlight mohair" that I purchased when I obviously was delusional . . .
