Today was a no-good, rotten, very bad day. Today I got the dreaded rejection letter from a certain magazine, explaining that my submission had not made the final cut.
Am I disappointed? Yes. Am I drowning my sorrows in coffee and peanut butter cups? You bet. Is there a silver lining? There's always a silver lining.
For instance, I am now free to share some sneak peek pictures with you--pics I previously had to keep secret--like the one above (an oh-so-soft cowl/snood, featuring mohair, silk, and Merino).
Or this one. A fluffy-cuff mitten, featuring brushed baby Suri (alpaca) & hand-dyed chunky Merino (wool).
And, really, the brightest silver lining is this: I can now release these patterns any time I like. So I'm aiming for a Late Fall / Early Winter release. Holla if you love having extra time to complete your winter knits!
Hello & Welcome!
I'm Alexis, the knitter/designer behind cold comfort knits. My favourite animal is a sheep (obvi). Second in line? Alpacas. But not llamas--those guys are mean! As for house pets? I'm a cat person, 100%. Other things to know about me? My primary knitting fuel is vanilla-hazelnut coffee. And my inner child is actually more of an inner senior-citizen. I'm an old fogey at heart. Nice to meet you! Happy knitting!
