Wow! So, I took Deneen's advice and submitted the ripple afghan I designed to the 2001 Crochet Pattern-a-Day Calendar. I heard back from Annie Modesitt that she would like to put the pattern in the calendar! I'm really excited, since I've never published anything before. Now to celebrate by, um, going to bed. I just wanted to post first, but the internet has been, well, spotty around here. I love having free wireless in my apartment; I don't love when my building's transmitter is down and I have to pick up from the next building over.

At least the waiting lets me work on my Minesweeper record times; my goal is to beat J.K. Rowling's best time. I'm handicapped, however, by the fact that I've only got a one-button mouse and have to flag mines by using the "ctrl" key. I've seriously considered investing in a two button mouse only to improve my score, as it's above 200 seconds right now for expert, and back in my Windows days I got down to the 160's. And yes, I freely admit that I'm pathetic.

Congrats! I know it's not like getting paid for a pattern, but it is a thrill getting published in something that is national! Woo-hoo!

Congratulations! I'm so glad your pattern is going to get some well-deserved recognition! And you're not pathetic. I love my Mac, but I still can't ever play Minesweeper on it. You'll get the hang of it. :)
