So a year ago, i took my knitting software and tossed it into my husband's lap declaring my frustration with it, and asked....ok demanded, that he make something better.
Taking it up with his boss, the 3 guys at Favor Software came up with this great new Knitting Design Software. Intwined Pattern Studio

darcy and leslie

i went to the mailbox today in the down pour, its 2 houses to the east of my house so it sounds really adventurous.
being in the small 300 people town, my postmaster is a friend. Tiff gets as excited about our mail as we do. she loved all the postacrds from india and nepal.
so i opened it right there.
inside a plain bubble envelope was the most amazing Cable pendant engraved "Love Darcy and Leslie"

i love it! did i mention its on a thicker cord so i can't loose it?!
not only is it invaluable to knitting but its my favourite jewelry.
years ago when leslie had this idea, i was totally for it so i would not loose my cable needle in the middle of a project or forget i hooked it on my shirt collar.
i am so proud of where she has taken it. 6 magazines i think so far have done a spotlight on it. (vogue,interweave, spinoff)
so if you get a chance go congratulate her!

and schmooze with darcy too!
if you stop by you can enter to win your own Cable needle necklace!
