This jacket was a long time coming.  It was inspired by a Versace piece I had seen while window-shopping in NYC and then saw again in a magazine.  What I was drawn to the most was the steely cut and the bold lines of the fabric.  I tried to recreate it in my Sofia.

I sent the design off to Knit (formerly Yarn Forward), a British magazine, last March along with a few other sketches.  They very kindly decided they were going to take four of the six pieces I submitted for consecutive issues.  (They’re a monthly.)  Beginning with issue 42 and continuing through issue 45, I will have one of my designs in the magazine.  Three of the pieces are now done, but this one, Sofia, made the cover.  I’m thrilled.  I only wish the model they chose was a little tinier, as I feel the fit is different than what was on my Manny.

Next month, they are running a “designer inspiration” piece on me and I am to be featured.  Happy!!!
