Why, lookie here

Horseshoes Cardigan
Yarn: Debbie Bliss Pure Silk
Needles: 2.5 mm
Pattern: my own, found at Magknits! (Eeeee!)

I wasn't entirely sure Magknits were going to publish this until a few days before the October issue went live, and then I saw it just as we were preparing to fly over to the UK to go flat-hunting, so I haven't had time to let it sink in yet!

I'm totally excited about it. The pattern editor must have superpowers or something, because her re-worked version makes a million times more sense than the original I had sent in. I do wish I had gotten better pictures, but, well, photographing knits and yarn, modelling clothes, setting up shoots, it's all an art that I still have yet to acquire any talent in.

I'd love to hear any comments, questions, rants, etc., so please feel free to contact me about the pattern!

Having said that, though, I haven't looked at any of the knitting forums to see what the reaction has been. I'm slightly frightened, because sometimes people are merciless, but if I wasn't told what isn't good, how am I supposed to improve? So I'll go and check now. Cross your fingers.

Well, according to Ravelry there are about 30 people knitting or planning to knit your cardigan. But I haven´t seen any feedback as yet.

And as for the photos/ lighting/ close ups ... all in good time my dear! I´m sure your patterns will continue to incite people to knit the world over. Here´s to many more!

Don't worry, they liked it on Knitty!

Yep, the Knittyheads love it.

I'm actually very sad that I'm on a yarn diet and have nothing in my stash to knit this right away!

That's YOURS? Oh, it's so cute! It's already on my to-knit list. Congrats on getting a pattern published. Yes, the knittyheads loved it, I'll vouch for that as well. :)
