Props for Splendor & Updates

Hello to all of you out there in the blog-o-verse! The past few weeks have been serendipitous and exciting and BAM! Here I am to tell you about it!

Firstly, Splendor has gotten a couple of mentions in other blogs. Here we are featured with several other fun knits in Discovery Channel's Nerdabout NY blog. The post is about DIY Knitted Halloween costumes, so they shared our Swine Flu Masque and the Viking Toque I knitted for my friend Corey.

More recently, we got some English luv when Simply Knitting--a UK-based knitting magazine--shared a review of our blog. It's mildly amusing that they have Davitron and I both living in NYC, but I understand that it's not really clearly stated anywhere that this isn't the case. Just to clarify: Davitron lives in Portland, Oregon (a.k.a. 'PDX'), which is where all the knitting began. Well, not all the knitting, but the knitting related to Splendor, anyway.

Finally, we wanted to give you an update on Peppermint Patrick. We've been considering varied options for making this pattern available, and are pleased to announce it will be available as a kit soon! Stay tuned for more details on this, and other Splendor patterns slated for release soon.

Yay knitting!

I hope you don't mind if I put some links to your blog on my blog...I don't know how I missed the swine flu mask. I laughed outloud at that one.

Congrats on the guys deserve it!
