Well, I heard back from Knitty about my Winter submission and

it was rejected. It's ok. I'm just getting started in this thing called knit and beading design. It's been a big step for me just to submit designs to Beadwork and Beadstyle magazine, and Knitty. Yes, this is my third rejection. I do have several more good ideas in the noggin that I want to work on. Also, with every rejection I get, I offer up a new pattern in my free patterns section of the blog sidebar. So, here are the details on what I submitted. The project is a knitting with beads choker pattern using Paton's Grace and size 6/0 glass seed beads with a shank button centerpiece. I call her, Pickford. It's a fairly simple pattern to do if you are familiar with knitting with beads and makes a quick fun gift for the holidays. I will have it ready for all of you on my sidebar by tomorrow morning, so if you don't see it, check back. In happier news, Danielle of No-No Kitty yarn fame received my handmade journal (she was my buddy for the swap). She likes the journal and put up a pic of it on her blog. Go check it out! This is a very fun swap to be involved in. The next round will start in February for those interested.

I'm sorry to hear you didn't get accepted. It seems like tons of people are submitting designs, and in the case of Samus/Kepler, I think her choices are not always the best. That being said, congratulations in trying again and I love your choker!

adorable choker! I'm sorry that your pattern was rejected. Don't give up designing and submitting your patterns. One day something will get picked up. (Personally, I think there's a bit of favoritism going on at Knitty, but I'm not a Knitty-basher so I just keep my mouth shut. Usually.) Try submitting something to Magknits.

Bummer! Mine got rejected as well, so I sent it off to Mag Knits to make myself feel better. I think submitting is like selling a novel or a house - just gotta get it in front of the right person at the right time. Hang in there, and know that you're not alone! I think your design is very cute, by the way...
