I have been published !!!

Firstly, thanks a lot you guys for stopping by my blog and leaving your comments. It is always a pleasure hearing from you.

I had another pleasure this week, of having my first pattern published anywhere apart from Ravelry. Those of you who have read my previous posts may well know that I was working on two patterns for the KnitPink Project. Well, I could not complete the second one in time, but the first one was done well before time, sent to Christina (founder of KnitPink), and accepted for publishing with the Website launch.

As I had noted earlier, the Website is a great project to help bring breast cancer awareness and also aid breast cancer patients through sale of the knitwear patterns available. And so I thought it was a great place to start publishing my patterns. If some of you out there are already designers or have been looking for an opportunity to start publishing your own designs, this may be the one for you. Plus you are helping in a great cause. I urge you to visit the Website and make contributions, be it your own designs or buying the patterns that are already listed there.

Mine is called ColorPlay and is currently available for download for $5 from the Website.
