Book??????????


This is a picture of Pretty In Pink that my friend Kathleen took for me today. I think it shows the glove nicely. If you click on the picture it will enlarge so that you can see it better.

Here's a new development. A couple of my friends in the Fingerless Glove Fanatics Group on Ravelry think I should submit my pattern to someone they know for her new book. No guarantee that it would get in it, but they seem to think that it would. So now I'm trying to decide if I want to do that or not. It's a wonderful opportunity, but so is being able to sell it on Ravelry! I have no idea what I'll do!

My testers are working on the pattern. The one who thought she couldn't crochet well enough has completed the cuff and finishing row 7 on the hand awhile ago!! I knew she would be able to do it! She posted a picture of the cuff and it looks great! She's going to be so proud of herself when she finishes them.

I'm getting ready to do a fingerless glove swap at the FGF group. They're also having a CAL and KAL for September that I want to join. They sure know how to keep you busy! LOL It's a great group and I really have enjoyed meeting everyone there. Such talent at Ravelry! It's amazing! Young women knitting and designing such beautiful things! I'm in awe of all of them. Not only are they a talented group, they are also very smart and polite and cute!! Of course there are all ages in this group, but so little is said about the young people who are doing the right things that I feel that they should be recognized! The whole group are awesome, even the men! Don't tell them that I said that. We wouldn't want them to get swelled heads! hehe

Time to go check on the progress of my crocheters! I'll keep you informed!

Looks even better there...and those NAILS....they all work so well together. (okay, and I'm a bit jealous of the nails...how in the hades do you K and C with those suckers.....and untie knots, and well, not pop them off?...I had some for awhile, and found out I'm not a good long nail owner)

GO for the $$

I know. I thought I was a decent K and Cer until I met Ravelry! Not jealous, just very very humbled. And LQQK and what you did!!!!!

Nice job.

Girl! Those are gorgeous! Submit that pattern woman...how awesome would it be to your own pattern published?! From the looks of those gloves...I'd say you have an excellent chance.
Hugs!

Gorgeous! I say submit it to the book, if they don't print it you can still sell it on Ravelry. I mean, how cool would it be to say you were published in a book!!!

I say go for the book too. The pattern can still be shown on Ravelry but the source will be the book if it's published.
