Woo-hoo!

I'm working on my second design for Vogue Knitting! Yay! It's slated to be in their Holiday issue. Of course, I'm trying not to count my chickens before they're hatched, but... yay!!

Now, I'm not going to give too much away before I've finished knitting it, but it's:

1. Red(dish)
2. Bulky weight
3. Hooded

My very first hood. I have to remember next time to not submit something I've never actually knit before. I'm just not going to think about it for now. Thankfully my Knitty City buds have been talking me through it. Love them!

I'm also working on some submissions for Twist Collective. They frown upon any "previews", so I say nothing. Wish me luck!

Yay michelle! Good luck!

My 2 cents about a hood: make it bigger than you think it should be - nothing worse than a too-tight hood!

Can't wait to see it!

mazel tov, michelle! I was curious about how you were able to get away with "previewing" the VK project - the first one, that is ...
just keep all of your projects as stealth knitting, except, of course, with your closest friends who know they have to zip it all the time ;o)
you're a genius, do you know that?

Wow, you are simply amazing! I can't wait to see it! I see a SF knit-a-long in the future...

Good luck with the hood! I've never done one either but I'm sure you can do it.

And good luck with Twist Collective too. They have some really great patterns! You'll fit right in.
