Jackyll & hide

Remember this one....?The first week of October was Christmas and a half for me. Well, more than that, much more; I became a mom for the first time, it was my birthday ánd it one of my patterns got published for the first time. Published on Knitty, the mother of all knitting sites.


Obviously I was occupied with my son and so I did the happy dance, mailed some of my friends and was speechless for a couple of minutes, but then the baby cried and nappies needed changing and so I lost track of the ripple that caused the big wave.


Last week I googled Jackll & hide and was amazed at what I found. 8 pages of hits, people from all over the world that had knit or are in the process of knitting Jackll & hide.

This time I was speechless for a couple of hours....



These are just a few of the J&h's that I stumbled upon. It's really weird thinking about people all over the world, seeing my desing, liking it, buying the yarn or getting it from stash, starting to knit it, finish it and wear it or give it away. It's like what I imagined when I was 12 how Madonna would feel knowing that there always at all times must be someone in the world listening to her music. I feel famous. Wow!
Thanks everybody for liking my design! Please send me pictures if you're knitting Jackll & hide too! :-)
I feel extra inspired now to design more, so gotta go....

Yay, keep on designing Saskia!

You are not on Ravelry yet? There must be a fast lane for designers into it. Well, your design is in and it is currently in 66 projects, in 145 queues. From what I can see 40 knitters has finished your hat. And that is only on Ravelry... Someone even calls you super genius!!

Hi Saskia
I LOVE Jackyll and Hyde and intend to knit it for my best friend for Christmas. I'm finding it hard to obtain the Lana Grossa Bingo - can you tell me if I coudl substitute it for a chunky, or a double knit yarn?
I'll post a pic of the finished article when it's done!
Thanks
