I knit. And I cook, write, take pictures. All for one low price.

told you!

One door closes, another opens. Well, one door opened today, it was the mail man dropping two packages on my front porch.

I got an official rejection letter from Eunny Jang, the new editor of Interweave Press.
Please understand I am not being sarcastic. In fact, I would like everyone to know that in all my dealings with Interweave Press, everyone has always been very courteous and professional. When I had my shop, they were a great press to deal with. Great books and magazines, along with great service.

The rejection package I received today contained my two submissions, all materials I had sent to them, and a very nice letter encouraging me to try again in the future.

At the same time, I received a package of complimentary yarn from Lorna's Laces, for a submission for a book by Donna Druchunas. Now I get to wind some Swirl yarn, and start swatching...

What are you all working on?

For what it's worth, my writing teacher used to collect rejection letters, because she said its harder to get rejection letters than it is to get acceptances. So, really, you're obviously on the right track! We're cheering for you.

Much love.

rejection does not mean forgotten
as some people and designs are unforgettable....

Remember, my book got turned down by the first place I tried. I would add that it's a much better book for it, and that I owe Interweave bigtime for their doing so.
