Read my article in Interweave Knits

I'm so excited I'm doing the Snoopy dance with great gusto!

I am now a published author! Well, I've been a published author for years and years - I even earned a writing degree from the University of Maryland all the way back in 1988. But this is my first published article about knitting. A big distinction. ;-)

On the news stands now! Or soon anyway. Read my full-length feature article about Kathy Zimmerman in the summer issue of Interweave Knits. I haven't gotten my copy in the mail yet but I saw today that it's for sale now on the Interweave website.



What a thrill! It all started when editor Eunny Jang contacted Kathy about doing a profile article. Kathy kindly recommended that Eunny contact me. Imagine getting email from THE Eunny Jang! OMG, what a thrill. She checked out my blog, signed me up, and I headed to Ligonrier, PA, to interview and photograph Kathy. I submitted the article and then didn't hear a thing until three weeks ago. Eunny sent me the laid-out article to review. Again, OMG! There's my name in lights, so to speak. I love it!


I'm happy to finally be able to share this with you. I've got some other tricks up my sleeve so stay tuned. But please join me in the Snoopy happy dance until then!
