PINCH ME!!!!!!!!!
I had to come here and tell all of you my good news! About a month ago I submitted eight pattern designs to a major yarn company ( which will remain nameless for now, though all of you have bought their yarn, I'm sure). Ever since, I've been checking the answering machine and mailbox obsessively.
Today my machine was blinking and it was them. They are buying four of my designs! Three are still undecided, one was not accepted. So now the plan is they send me the yarns they want these projects completed in, I send them back, and I get paid. The money is not much, but what an ego boost!
When all is said and done I'll tell you what they are and who they are for. I guess until the thing is published you can't really talk about it in detail, which makes sense.
So how cool is this? I feel........validated.
Plus, this is excellent ammunition for justifying my yarn addiction.

LOL, thanks for the good feedback everybody. I don't know yet in what format they'll be published, whether a leaflet, website, pattern book or what. Will have to wait and see I guess.
Now I can obsessively stalk the mailman or UPS man or whoever brings the box of yarn!
My DH said, "What are you going to do with the money?"

Oh, what a dumb question.

So you just submitted them or was there a call for submissions or what? Congrats This sounds so thrilling.
