Do you see this? Jared Flood, of Brooklyn Tweed fame listed my Quilt & Cable blanket as a favorite on Ravelry!!
Can you believe it! The number of people viewing the project page has jumped enormously just since yesterday. This really makes me feel better about myself, as a knitter and a designer (especially after receiving my second rejection from an online knitting magazine). I'm starting to understand that there is a lot of hit-or-miss with these things, and I'm sure that designers of Jared's caliber must have gone through this same process. Anyway, the validation feels fantastic!
