Today I got the letter from Interweave that my submission was rejected. I've decided that I don't have the energy to shop it to other magazines right now, so here it is. I'll be preparing the pattern for The Garter Belt over the next several days. While it's a little disappointing to get rejected, I still think it's a good design and I'm proud of it. And it's a bit of a relief not to have to drop everything and make a sample in the yarn and size needed on three weeks notice. So, back to Plan A, which is to continue self-publishing on my own schedule for now and work more seriously on print submissions in the fall, when The Little Emperor goes to kindergarten.
The Alishar pattern is available for immediate pdf download.
