I am so excited that four more of my patterns have been accepted into the Knit Picks Independent Designer Partnership – woohoo! At first my Firefly series was rejected because of the problems people have encountered with knits from the show (cough, Jayne hat, cough). But after removing all references to Firefly/Serenity (including changing some names), they are a-ok! Leaf on the Wind, Big Damn Heroes (will be listed as “Zoe Lace Poncho”), The Ambassador, and Wasn’t Born a Shepherd (will be listed as “Shepherd Felted Satchel”) will all be available later this summer.
I will be knitting samples for at least The Ambassador, probably Leaf on the Wind (because the yarn for the prototype is now discontinued), and possibly Wasn’t Born a Shepherd (if they want the longer strap). I have amnesia about The Ambassador, so I am foolishly excited to make another. 🙂 I am participating for the first time in Nerd Wars (on Team Browncoat!) so I can knit the samples and apply them to challenges, too!
