Throwback Thursday… Reminiscing

Yarn Forward Magazine No. 32, January 2011

Once upon a time, on the west side of Phoenix, there lived a girl who loved knitting.  She was very passionate about it, so much so that she wanted to learn everything there was about it, including designing.  She learned how to write patterns for her hat, scarf and cowl designs, and even wrote a wrap design that was published in a magazine.

That girl was me, and that was 9 years ago.  Wow, time does fly!!  I am so blessed to have had a design published in a magazine, and while I am still very passionate about knitting, I haven’t designed for the last few years.  Maybe someday I will return to designing, or even re-open my Etsy shop, but for now I will cherish the once in a lifetime moment of being in the Yarn Forward magazine.

I knitted the sample piece in King Cole Merino Blend Aran
The original pieces I designed were knitted in Lionbrand Organic Wool in the color Pecan

“This design was inspired by the many books, movies and music surrounding the mystery of the lost city of Atlantis. The illusion of the cable design is to give the appearance of cables fading in and out, just as dreams often do.”

Until next time, be creative!
