I'm so excited! After saying a few days ago that I didn't have any testers, I got two today! Hopefully they will finish soon and I can re-publish it.

'Photo Shoot' Success

I did my photo shoot for the Strawberry Patch Handwarmers on Thursday. I made a deal with my little sister that if she would model the handwarmers she could have them. I think it was a great deal, and she may have got shortchanged because I realized she was a great model. :) Here are a few of my favorites:
She did this all by herself. I was so happy!
I love the seriousness; but yet a hint of a smile.

My First Submission and Pattern-in-Testing

I submitted my first submission to a fairly well-known knitting magazine recently. I don't expect to be accepted, but it definitely marks a high point in my career. :) I feel like a real designer now!

Right now I am working on the testing of the revision for my Strawberry Patch Handwarmers. I felt soooo bad when I found the mistakes, and I almost felt like I had failed as a designer. But everybody makes mistakes, and I feel a lot better than I did at first. :) Besides, I took the opportunity to add some new sizes! So I can't wait to get that finished, but I am having a little bit of trouble finding testers. :(


I am a 14 year old designer who just recently started publishing designs, and I started this blog as a way to tell others about my designs and where I am as a designer. I am very excited to share this journey!
