First, the good news

Well, it might not seem like good news, announcing that my second submission has been rejected by Vogue Knitting, but read on.

My first submission was accompanied by a letter that basically said, 'Thanks, but it's not for us.'

The second, which they kept much longer, came back with this letter:

'Thank you for your design submissions. We were unable to use them at this time, but we encourage you to continue submitting to our publications in the future.

Thank you again for thinking of us. We look forward to seeing more of your work!'


I do feel chuffed :)

However, as one door opens, another door shuts. I am sorry to announce that I will no longer be submitting designs to Knitting magazine, as I am not happy with the way they have handled the error on the 'Magic!' hat pattern.

The Beamish Boy currently has the correct chart on his machine, but I expect it (and the other two I submitted) will be back on my PC soon, so if anyone would like a copy of the correct chart for the lightning bolt hat, do let me know. Don't expect instant answers, as I'm not managing to get online every day - but, if nothing else, I should be online every Sunday.

I still have a camisole in the the works at Knitting, but that will be the last one. It's sad, but I felt I had no other choice.

yes I would expect you to feel chuffed at the second letter from VK. I do like their magazine very much and I look forward to seeing one of your designs in there one day.

re Knitting mag, I haven't seen the patterns but I can certainly understand your frustration.

ps: it's so nice you've been able to post two Sundays in a row.
hugs to you!
