Another nice surprise

Perplexity: somebody who was Not Tom knocked on my door with a box in hand with a return address that clearly indicated a publishing house.


But look:

This calendar is the reason I charge for my Candy Wrapper Scarflet - I'd submitted it for consideration and knew that if I just gave it away here, people would be (rightly) annoyed for paying for it there.

Receiving a copy of the calendar means the pattern was accepted, and guess where they put it?

April Fool's!

(except not, because it really is in there.)

There isn't a pattern for every single day because let's face it - most patterns take more than a day's worth of paper to record. Even so, it's a lot of designs for the investment - a lot of really cool ones. I'll be spending a lot of my non-knitting time looking over the options.

Oh, how very funny to be the designer of the April Fool's Day pattern! If I had the talent to design a pattern, that would be my day of choice. So funny. Now I just may have to order this, as well. I'm enjoying the hat pattern book featuring your pattern.
