Every once in a while, I'll Google my name or my web site, just to see what comes up.
More and More Common
It appears that many folks are doing that lately, and most specifically some of the designers whose patterns I've critiqued.
Lately, I've received a number of e-mails from designers who are interested to know more specifics about why or how I critiqued their designs in the magazines (no, Mari Lynn is NOT one of them).
I'm glad when they do. For the brief blurb I include for each design, it takes quite a bit of time to write those reviews, but it still isn't very useful feedback for the designer. When they write to ask more about what I liked or didn't like, it gives me the opportunity to provide somewhat more detailed feedback.
The nicest part is how open to feedback the designers have been.
The knitting of the Wool/Hemp Pullover is complete. YAY!!!
I still have to weave in some yarn ends and sew up the collar (and re-do it if I still don't like it). Overall, I'm very happy with how this turned out.
Kerri asks (concerning the Wool/Hemp yarn), "Is it the worsted or sport weight, and what shade number?"
The Wool/Hemp yarn from Dzined is the Sport Weight in shade number WH1292. I don't see this shade number
Cheryl asks, "Is the wool/hemp pullover for you? Does the wool/hemp yarn hurt your hands when you knit?"
Most of my sweaters fit both Thaddeus and me, so this is another of "our" sweaters. The wool/hemp doesn't hurt to knit with, it's a little more stretchy than cotton/hemp.
