There hasn't been much to celebrate this year, but this week I'm definitely celebrating! I'm so pleased to share that I'll be participating as a Fellow in the Eat Sleep Knit Pattern Academy for the next six months.
This generous program provides Fellows a stipend for materials, photography and layout resources, access to a pool of skilled testers (the Pattern Academy Purlers), and pattern placement in their exclusive Designer's Showcase.
The best part of designing is seeing knitters create beautiful projects that they love. Yet, one of the biggest challenges I face is getting my patterns onto knitter's needles. It can feel risky to invest time and materials in a pattern from an unfamiliar designer! For me, having ESK highlight my work and put it directly into the hands of people eager to support new designers is a profound opportunity, and it's an honor to have been selected.
If you'd like to learn more about the program, or about the DASH accelerated shipping that makes it possible, you can do that here!
