So, my friends, I have had a knitting pattern published! And in Knitty, no less, a fact of which I am entirely, unrepentantly and completely excited (and not a little smug, too). I present to you: Caaaarbs! An ode to all that is good and noodle-y…
You can find them on Ravelry here, if you’d like to add them to you queue or favourite them, or (gasp!) leave a comment! This pair has a very large set of
balls pom poms, but you can make yours whatever size you like.
If you don’t get the joke yet, these mitts are inspired by the Flying Spaghetti Monster; an internet phenom since 2005. That’s right. I’m just THAT current with my cultural references.
Regardless, I am extremely pleased. Non-Knitters may not realize it, but being in Knitty is Very Much a Big Deal. Actually, way back when I started making and selling purses, at the very first craft show I ever did, Amy from Knitty showed up and spied my Yarn Pirate Bag. She featured it, and I sold more of them than I could ever have imagined. I really do credit her with helping to launch my sewing career! Seven years later, I’ve come full circle and actually have a real pattern published in the magazine (and photos of me wearing a colander on my head. I am shameless).
