I decided to give up on the whole thing as February slipped past around and I had still not heard anything back from them. Then in March I got an exciting e-mail letting me know that my design had been selected! (YAY!!!)
...Oh and I had until April 15th to get the sweater and the written pattern to them...
Well, now you know why my blogging is so erratic! I really didn't do anything but knit all March. The kids were very good and didn't ask for anything and my husband quietly did the everyday chores like laundry and dishes without me having to ask.
The sweater was sent in and the pattern was written up and e-mailed off in time. Whew!
Then for the hardest part ... I was not allowed to tell anyone until the magazine was published!
