Have you seen it?

The new Curvy Knits booklet is out! The photography and model are gorgeous & I've head wonderful things about how round knitters are liking the patterns.
I've been a published designer for 6 years now & it still feels amazingly surreal to see my patterns in print.

Jillian, it is wonderful!! Your creativity is inspiring. Now to pick up some sticks and knit after the weekend and all the fiber indulgences. I fear that Mona is gonna be lonely this fall!

Spinning (and knitting) moistly - as always!!

Congratulations once again, Jillian. Yes, I can understand that surreal thing. For one thing, the delay between the idea and the print distribution can be so long it's like a dream.

I am delighted for you. Lovely work, as always.

I love everything about each of the patterns (I can't tell you how rarely that happens). Especially the shaping.

I tend to be on the lower end of the plus size scale and these designs are modern and flattering in all the right ways. Thank you! ~ksp

Very cool!

I just pointed an ample knitter toward Curvy Knits and saw the new offerings. You should definitely feel good about bringing fashion-forward, interesting designs to larger women. Honestly, if you look across the pattern landscape these days there are way more options for plus sizes (not enough, but way more than there were 5 years ago) and you have certainly played a major role in making it come true. As a designer, I can say I have been directly affected by your (and Amy's!) work to expand the knitterly choices for a significant number of women and am much more cognizant about including larger sizes and flattering silhouettes for various body types. So congratulations... and thanks.
