I’ve mentioned previously that I’d submitted the pattern for the afghan I made for Greyson’s Baby Blessing for publication. It was not accepted and I’ve been meaning to get the pattern uploaded to sell on Ravelry myself like I did for Persephone’s Ribbon and Pearls afghan. Somehow I just haven’t gotten that done and now I’m glad.
I got an email the other day from Crochet World calling for design submissions for their Spring 2015 Special issue “Blue Ribbon Crochet.”
The issue will “showcase a variety of award-worthy projects that reflect some of the most popular fairy-entry categories for crochet designs.”
The email said, “We want fabulous, prize-worthy designs that are exceptional in style but not difficult or intimidating to make.”
My design goes perfectly with what they’re looking for both with its simplicity and coincidentally with the blue ribbon. I’ve submitted the design and I’m anxious to find out if they’ll use it.
