Yay!!! I am so excited!! Finally, one of my designs has been accepted! After several rejections, I finally got to read those magic words, that my design has been accepted. It will be in the Winter issue of Popknits. Of course, I can't give away any of the details ;)

This is really great news because the last week was a bit lousy. First I got a flat tire, which isn't too bad but still an annoyance. Then the next day I got into a fender bender on the freeway. It was my first car accident, and getting hit at 50 mph was pretty scary. My bumper is hanging off and my trunk won't close, so I'm trying not to drive too much. I spent the weekend at home and couldn't even go visit my boyfriend because he lives 20 miles away. I mostly watched Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly musicals on TCM, and I feel like at any moment I'm going to break into song and start tap dancing. But now it seems like things are looking up. I'm getting my car checked out tomorrow, and hopefully take it to the body shop to be fixed.

Sending in my proposal was the easy part, now I have to get knitting! Going off now to click my knitting needles.

Yay!! I'm so happy for you, but ohhh the suspense!! Winter issue-- that's still mooooonths away! But, I have a ton of projects and a messed up shoulder to battle in the meantime so I doubt I'll be out of stuff to do in the meantime ;)
