In with a whisper...
I guess I should be happy that I had a pattern accepted by Interweave in the first place, but this isn't exactly the way I pictured it being published! It makes me wonder if everything that Pam said about everyone at Knits loving these socks was just lip service to save my feelings or something. It's also a little frustrating that she wanted them as knee-highs, but the chart to do the back-of-leg decreases (which wouldn't be necessary if they were regular-height socks) is what kept getting them bumped from the magazine (if indeed they didn't get included because of the size of the charts). Of course, hindsight is 20/20 and she may not have asked for knee-highs if she'd realized the chart was going to get so huge.
Anyway, I just need to vent a little. We'll see what happens with the socks they accepted for the Fall issue - hopefully I'll be a little more successful with them! They obviously don't hate my socks because I got a second pair accepted, but it's hard not to feel a little bad when I was SO looking forward to seeing them in print in my favorite mag. That's life, I guess!
To top it all off, the whole family is sick. I'm hoping we get over it in time for our trip next week, but it's still no fun while we're in the thick of it... And now that you've had your daily dose of sunshine and happiness here at the Knittin' Mom blog, I'm going to go nurse Owen for the 24th time this morning. For some reason, being sick makes him think that the milk bar is open full-time.
