How exciting! Congratulations Ritaw!!! Rita sent in a letter with a picture of all her lovely Blossoms she made from a Simply Knitting pattern by Alan Dart. They are gorgeous and she is so talented. They published her letter and picture in this month's Simply Knitting!!! (Feb 2008, page 21).

Thank you so much Mary for letting me know. The magazine is still not in the shops here so i will have to wait a few more days to get my copy. I would have thought the magazine would let me know.
I am so happy:)
Thank you for your kind words MDF

I can't wait to see it!! I just now got the December '07 issue. I really should subscribe, but it doesn't hurt as badly paying $9 a month rather than $100 a year.

Hooray for Rita!!!!

So well deserved. She has been "Rita to the Rescue" for me on several occasions. Wonderful and talented person.

:cheering: :cheering: :cheering:

Of course it will probably be months and months until it hits the bookstores here, but I will be looking for it!

This is so wonderful, good work!

I'm surprised, however, that they don't at least send you a free copy.

Now, who is the other person from KH?

Barnes and Noble carries it. Also Borders. It is usually 2 months behind. The cost is $9.99.
