Who Me?

Out of the blue I get an email yesterday direct from Katie Himmelberg her self - you know, the Assistant Editor for Interweave Knits, Style Editor for Knitscene and knitware designer! - Well, this is what she had to say…

Hi Jill,

I would love to feature your gift tags in the Spring 08 issue of knitscene! Could you send me one knit and one crochet by next Wednesday?

Thanks!


My response was, "Heck Yes!!!" I sent out the package asap today!Knitscene and Interweave Knits are my favorite knitting magzines. Man, what an honor for Katie at Knitscene to contact me about my product. I'm so excited!!! Keep a look out for my gift tags in the Spring 08 issue!

AND, I found out that my Karate Sweater was the September winner over at Twinkle's website. Check it out! Go here, then click "Twinkle's Big City Knits" then click "View Submissions" finally click "View Winners"

I wonder what I won???

Have a great weekend!
