New Pattern Available!

Wanna make this?




Then you have to pick up one of these for the directions. Yes, the Fall 2007 issue of Knitscene is available and therefore, so too is my recipe for bowling bag luuuvvv.

Neato eh?

Feels like I'm living a dream.

Okay, let me qualify that last statement.

Feels like I'm living a dream when I stroll into a nearby bookseller and spot my patterns amidst the pages of the books and mags atop their shelves. That, my friends, definitely floats my boat. However, the dream tends to fade a little when I'm up 'til 2:00 am on a cube farm eve, eyeballs dry and barely functioning, hands fraught with pain, deadline looming, tendrils of yarn wrapping around my ankles feigning shackles, preventing me from crawling into bed.

Yeah, not so dreamy.

Nonetheless, I consider myself touched by lady luck, for I know that there are many individuals out there with talents far greater than my own who, for whatever reason, cannot seem to catch a break. So, despite the aching digits and the heart-pumping pace, I intend to ride this thing out.

Now, if I could just get my hand(s) on some Aleve...

Congrats Regina!

The dream may fade a little at 2:00 AM, but part of you thrives on the challenge;)

If only I bowled...

Your yarn tendril shackles are still cracking me up at this very moment.

Funny lady...

Oooh, must buy pattern now! I feel your pain on the wrists and no-sleep problems, but, at the same time, I am looking forward to reaping the benefits of your hard work. You rock, Lady!

Dayum, gurl. I'm having a tough time just keeping up with you!! Where does one purchase these mags? Do I have to actually go to a (gasp) MALL?! Urgh. Can one order them online (Amazon?) - just the one issue?

You have your tendrils of yarn; I have my tenuous grasp of reality...
