Hey Look Over Here.....

.......the summer issue of Knitty is up ........



.....the smile on my face right now is nowhere near as beautiful as Marnel's...I'm looking more like the Cheshire Cat !

Had to put up a couple more shots of my gorgeous model who was such a sport with her posing...strutting her stuff around the streets of Fresno in her bare feet and summer whites......thank you again Marnel, you're fab and stunning and have the best hair!

Others have said it, but I couldn't agree more. Yours is definitely the best pattern offered in the Summer Knitty. Absolutely beautiful! Congratulations on designing a winner!

Hi! I saw your pattern on Knitty and I love it. I was wondering if you have any pictures of the back, or if you could tell me what it looks like. Thanks!

I was so excited to see this Gudrun - Congratulations!! What a great design - and the photos are simply stunning!!

The cover of this summer's Knitty may be the most beautiful one yet. I adore your design, and the model, setting, photography, and styling are stunning!

I was also just thinking that the cover of last summer's Knitty is my second favorite, then realized that was one of your designs, too!

I cannot believe it is another of your patterns I fall in love again! I did your striped skirt a few weeks ago for my daughter and she is simply beautiful in it. She adores it 8and I want one for me).
Now Shetland Shorty... I immediately thought it was the perfect pattern for my merino Cashmere sock yarn, given to me by a dear friend. Darn! I have only 459 yds. Do you think that omitting the ties would do the trick?
Anyway congratulations. Nice work!

Congratulations, It is Gorgeous! Just the ticket for summer. And you, my dear get to play Pay it Forward! Send me your info!

WOW! I am so excited for you...I am out of town on business and finally got to go on line and wow! There is your creation. I love it and I was thinking that a pattern needed to be created for the little crop shrug/sweater. Those little items are so invaluable. Especially here in Calgary where summer is rarely summer and even when you wear short sleeves, you always need that 'little something' to take the edge of the chill. I definitely need to put that on my list...I even have the perfect yarn in my stash!!!!

I'm a bit late to this party, but wanted to add my congrats. It's by far my favorite pattern from this issue and I'm hoping to knit it soon. Amazingly beautiful modeled shots, too. Congratulations!
