Saturday’s mail brought my Padre Island Tee swatch in an envelope from Knitscene.
I’ve had more rejections than acceptances in recent months, so it would be easy to get discouraged, but I know that the competition for these national magazines is intense, and my chances of shining brighter than the well-known designers who are regularly published are practically nil to begin with.
Sometimes I could take or leave some of my designs, but this tee is a good one, so I’m going to keep it in my pocket.
I don’t have pictures of my design, so let’s enjoy this drive-in movie screen my paranoid neighbor erected between our houses.
On the bright side:
- I can submit the tee for another spring/summer call for submissions.
- I can knit it in wool and give it long sleeves and turn it into a fall/winter design.
- I can get a job at the new grocery store coming to town and not worry about any of this ever again.
