This is the 4th or 5th straight go-round when not one thing has been accepted by Vogue. I've been fortunate to get a lot of sweaters accepted by a variety of venues this past year - IK, Knittes, Cast On, Family Circle, various yarn companies, and of course, KNITTY - but never Vogue. Oh, well...

I worked at Vogue in the early 80's when it was under the editorship of Lola Erlich. In my worst, most paranoid moments I feel like I'll need a beard to get past the screening process and have my designs taken seriously.

As always, I tell myself that it's not a measure of my talent as a designer but more a matter of editorial need. My designs just didn't fit the need. It's getting harder to tell myself that, though.

If any of you are interested here's a PDF sample of what I submitted to them. All designs are copyright, my property (of course!) so any untoward use of them will be dealt with by my Yarrrn Pirates (Avast!)

NOTE: It's a pretty big file, and it's a PDF file. Be warned. Prepare to be boarded.
