I got my swatch in the mail yesterday—nine weeks after the submission deadline.
With all the deadlines for various publications coming up around the same time, I do wish they would send rejections by email, or at least adhere to their guidelines and return swatches for rejected items in four to six weeks so I can submit them elsewhere.
When I’m made empress of North America, things will be very different in the knitting world.
On the bright side:
- I had submitted a mini-pillow as a swatch, so I can add a strap to it and turn it into a purse.
- A cold front is due to arrive today!
- I got an acceptance by an elsewhere publication. More on that tomorrow.
