I’m a teensy bit embarrassed…

in knitscene - fall 2008, Pismo Hat

…over all the attention! Yesterday, a coworker instant messaged me and asked me about being a published knitter. She said she opened up her Knitting Daily, and there I was staring back at her! I knew they were going to run my blog post some time this week, but I had no idea which day. Just so you all know, there will be two more designers guest blogging on the site this week…

Pismo4So, after checking my blog stats, I’ve noticed that I’ve had over 500 new visitors! Welcome! Yoda and I want to welcome everyone to our little space on the Internet. Please feel free to have a look around, comment, and email me with any questions you may have. Yoda, of course, always welcomes new Friends of Yoda submissions, too…she says you can never have too many friends!

Since there are so many new visitors, I feel I must blog about some knitting. Last night I feverishly worked on the Pismo Hat #1 while I watched a movie. Because I keep decreasing stitches, it’s been moving along quite quickly. I’m a bit concerned about how long this hat is going to turn out. But the way I look at it is that I can always remove yarn from the bottom in some stealthy knittery way. Why should I rip out what’s already done and have to redo it when there is a simpler way to fix it if there is an issue. And I have no idea if there is even going to be an issue!

I’ve also been pondering my next big project. Should I just go ahead and work on the Ribby Pulli? I love that pattern, but I’ve stalled on it for some reason. Or is there some other project that I should start? What’s hot in the Knitting World these days? I’ve also been thinking it’s time I work on the Gucci Knock-Off pattern, too.

I saw your name in the subject line of the Knitting Daily e-mail and knew it was familiar but couldn’t place it, then I opened the e-mail and saw your picture. Congrats on the published pattern and being featured in Knitting Daily! I like your design!
