While Karen's been showing up how she designs her sweaters (it's beautiful, BTW Karen), I've been struggling with pattern submission.

I've been making these gloves for some time, and I was ready to write the pattern and sell it too.

One of my goals this year is to get published in a magazine, and when ! got the editorial calendars for a couple of magazines, I realized I had better get a pattern around NOW!

So I did, I was almost finished writing the pattern when my files all deleted from my thumb drive (glad I had them all backed up elsewhere). Then I had to do it again.

When I went to re write the pattern, I modified it, so that it would be a little easier to make. Took out the little bits between the fingers.

I agonized over this pattern for weeks!

I am N.E.R.V.O.U.S.! wondering what I could have done wrong, looking over the pattern again and again.

And I can't even share the photo!!

I think I just need to go write the slouchy hat pattern now.

  1. Good luck! Those are really pretty. I'd offer to test the pattern for you but you'd be better off with someone that would follow the directions and not wander off singing their own tune in the middle of it.
