This is a busy time of year for knitwear designers who like to send out submissions proposals for third party publication.
I sent out three last month. I will have two of them published! One will appear in a magazine next year and the other in a book(!) early in 2016. I have not heard back on the third proposal. It has been almost a month -- not a good sign. (That third one was really my favorite of the three, so, I think if a rejection comes, it should be my next self-published pattern.)
I will write more soon about the progress of the Playground Shawl KAL. (Believe it or not, there is still time to join! Playgrounds are all about fun and no worries. See this post for the details. Go to this Ravelry thread to sign up and enjoy the fun!)
