Well, Quince & Co. never responded so I submitted my Hilda design to Knitty on March 29th. Looking for meaning and calling on guardian angels, I chose this date because it was my grandmother Mildred's birthday. I was happy to see it on my calendar as I was making my decision. A sign? She would have been 110. Hilda was Mildred's sister. Another sign :). Now Knitty has 3 of my designs - Hilda, Hattie, and Martha - for potential publication. Surrounded by these kindred spirits we shall see, but taking things as they come, I'm at work on my website. More about that soon.
