I just couldn't wait to post this thread..Yesterday my January edition of Simply Knitting arrived through the post and I decided to only have a quick peek as I was night duty and wanted to save it for then. So half way through the night I get out my needles and magazine and settled down. I always just skim through my magazine at first only to go back and savor every article in depth.
And there on page 70 (SURFING WEBSITES) is our very own Silver's Palace!!!!!! :woot: ""American knitter and spinner, Silver, has lots of pictures on her current knitting and spinning projects, and she writes a sassy blog too."" :thud: This is followed by a great writeup about her site. They are also advertising Ravelry "Worth waiting for--get on the list now"..I hope you don't have to wait too long over there to get hold of a copy of Simply Knitting so that you can read the article for yourselves. Well done Silver that's what I say x:muah:

After reading your blog several times I'm not surprised.

Hey if you want to get lots of orders for your bag then put it up there, I know you are going to get lots of hits now! ;)

Nope.. had no idea! What a fantastic surprise. Thanks again Pauline for the heads up!!! I's probably a good thing that I didn't see it for myself first. I probably would have fallen right off my chair. LOL

My site was mentioned in a computer tech magazine about a decade ago when I used to offer free web graphics and graphic tutorials. (Imagine that.. I've done other tutes. lol) But theirs was a tiny one line blurb that said go here for graphics and tutorials. LOL But this has a pic and everything. Woot! Just goes to show that knitters ROCK. :woohoo:

Congrats to you! I can't think of any person who deserves it more. Way to go Mrs Silver. Your toot is going to be famous all over now. (I'm so glad I got my order in first and can say I knew you when and have the bag to prove it!).

Not sure it is available in USA yet. If not, I would be happy to send you a copy of it. I will be picking mine up on Thursday.

Oh, good. Another reason to justify the $10 price tag at Border's. It is my favorite knitting mag AND Silver is in it.
I don't see any other solution but to drive to Dallas this weekend and see if they have it.
Congrats, Silver!

Thanks everyone!!!

I drove all over town looking for the magazine, but only found an October issue, and a November issue. So I guess it'll be a while before I can actually get my hands on one.

But I'm SOOOO glad you posted the pic DQ. I saved it and emailed it to my family and friends. lol :hug:

Um.. just thinking about that makes me nervous. I think I might have a wee bit of stage fright. I'm not in a rush to do television, but I don't think I could say no either. LOL :help:

Sadly, it's not. Thank you so much for the offer, but Pauline is a doll and has offered to supply me with a copy.

You all are really sweet and I'm truly touched. :heart:
