http://i161.photobucket.com/albums/t224/momwolf53/wow.gifHow cool is that :woot: :woot:I will have to buy a calendar :woohoo::woohoo:

07-09-2007, 09:24 PM
:muah: :muah: Ya'll are so WONDERFUL! My goodness, I'm crying like a big baby because of all the nice things ya'll said :heart: Thanks so very, very much!
The only reason that I got a calendar already is because I had patterns (I thought it would in all actuality be 1, maybe!) in it, so I got a free one. But, I know you can purchase them from Accord Publishing in August, probably Amazon, too. And they are always out in our Barnes & Noble starting around Sept. when other calendars come out.
My goodness, I'm so touched that you want to get the calendar because I have patterns in it, very honored, thanks so much...yep, I'm now crying harder, LOL!
This collection is done by a new publicist/designer (don't know the correct name) and the collection looks better, the quality of the calendar and the way it's put together looks a lot better IMHO and I've seen some very nice patterns, I've not yet gone all the way through it...LOL, I want to, but I want to wait until I get another one, the one that won't ever be opened! It's like when Shannon was in Teen People, we got 10 or 12 copies to keep forever; and the KnitPicks catalogs that my Loopy Socks were in...this calendar (the unopened one) will be put away to show the grans one day, and anyone that will look, LOL!!
I was so touched, it was delivered to the place Lonnie works because when UPS arrived Fri I didn't hear them because i was asleep because of all the pain business so we rerouted the package to his work...well, he showed it off at work, which made me so proud because he's so proud of me!!:blooby:

YA'LL ARE THE GREATEST:cheering::cheering::cheering: THANKS SO MUCH:blooby::blooby:

07-09-2007, 09:58 PM

07-10-2007, 12:26 AM

LOL, nope, not all sock patterns, I think that there are only 2 sock patterns. LOL, still so nervous I don't know how many, I'm pretty sure 2 sock patterns.
:blooby:YA'LL ROCK:blooby:

I am sooooooooo happy for you! I can't wait to buy this one. I've seen some of your other patterns, and if they published yours the quality of the patterns in that particular calendar must be improving greatly.
I've bought it for two years and am looking forward to the 2008 one most of all.

I gotta wait HOW long til I get this?

Sigh... *makes note on calendar to run down to B&N in September*


Congrats! That is sooooo awesome!


07-12-2007, 03:49 PM
OMGoodness, thanks so very, very much!!!! Ya'll are so sweet and wonderful!! You make me feel so special! Remember, I'm not the only KH'er who has patterns in this calendar, either!!!

Aineepooh, most of the patterns that are on the calendar are also on my blog, so there are not 9 new patterns on the calendar. I think they target these calendars for the very new knitters that aren't aware of finding patterns online, etc. I asked them this, because I LOVE to share my patterns online for free, had they said that I could not share them with everyone online then I wouldn't have submitted them. There is NO WAY I could hold out so many patterns and not share them with ya'll! And with Rachel at KPC, I get no greater joy than a knitter of whom I've never met emailing me to say thanks for this or that pattern. And, besides, you do this for free, the designer gets a calendar for payment!
I just wanted to let ya'll know so you won't be disappointed because you can already find most of the patterns on my blog. If you look in the 2007 calendar you will also find many that are also online for free. But, as I said, I, in no way, think they do this to deceive, but they are marketed toward the new knitter, at least that's my thought!!! Anyway they do it, I'm thrilled and stunned that they chose 9 of mine! And I can't thank ya'll enough!!!

07-12-2007, 04:01 PM
That is so wonderful. It is so great to see such a nice, sharing person rewarded. You deserve it! BTW I didn't know there was such a cool calendar available. I'm getting one!

07-12-2007, 07:02 PM
OK~ who else are the KHers pattern designers~:shrug::shrug:

Speak up ~ NOW IS YOUR CHANCE~ :happydance::happydance:
COME AND GET YOUR APPLAUSE~!!:cheering::cheering::cheering::cheering ::cheering::cheering:

I do belive mdwezi was one too~:aww:

07-12-2007, 10:35 PM
Thanks so much, loveswildflowers, what a kind thing to say!!!

ainee, I've mentioned it a couple of times and they haven't said anything, I don't want to say, I want them to tell you themselves!!!!
Come on ya'll.....you know who you are, tell everyone!!!

07-13-2007, 02:49 AM
Well as I own the 2k7 calendar, I'll have to pick up the 2k8 calendar now as well, knowing several KH'ers have their patterns in there.

07-14-2007, 12:10 AM
Way to go, girl! :thumbsup:
