Committed

"...the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way." -  William Hutchinson Murray

Ever since I decided to take my design work seriously, things have been happening. An online shop started carrying my designs. People are requesting patterns. I have ideas!!! FabergĂ© was selected for a KAL on Ravelry as part of MadMay. I've been mentioned on a knitting podcast (twice!) A famous designer was given a Lizard Ridge afghan as a group gift and mentioned me on her blog. I got invited to do a trunk show at Stitches Mid-West. And I can't even tell you about the coolest thing yet - it's a sekrit!  All this stuff has happened in the last 2 or 3 months. How cool is that???

My latest project - people actually asked me to design more vests!



I think I will wear this a lot - it will be perfect for work this spring and summer. I can throw it over a tank or t-shirt and look a little more put-together than I usually do :)
