#tbt: CrafterNews Knitter of the Month

Throwback Thursday: June 2013

A year ago I was featured in CrafterNews as their "Knitter of the Month".  It was such a lovely honor and I'm still in awe that it happened. And that I knit a shawl with eleven different colors of yarn! 

It was still a fairly fresh experience when, four months later, I was able to meet the designer of the "Tamara wrap" Melissa Leapman.  She was teaching a class at the TKGA/CGA Knit and Crochet Show in Charlotte.  I was sitting about 4 tables back, wearing the wrap and about halfway through the class she stopped and looked at a question at me and I said, "Yes, this is your design." 

She was nice enough to pose with me (and the wrap) for a picture:
