Yesterday I received the form letter rejection from Interweave. I was sure the designers for the Winter issue had already been notified but was hoping that they were holding on to my design for a future issue.
My disappointment turned to giddiness when I discovered that Eunny Jang had attached a handwritten note to the sketch I submitted. I didn’t notice it for a few minutes because the note was written on the same type of graph paper as my sketch. At first I thought this was standard IK procedure but found out (via other Ravelers that submitted to IK) that not everyone receives a personal response. Her kind words definitely boosted my confidence. Eunny, if you ever read this – thank you!
