When I was planning this post, I first talked to Kristin to get permission to post a photo. Then I headed over to Amazon to grab a cover of her book. While there, I noticed the message at the top of the page that said “You purchased this item on July 29, 2010.” Seriously! This day, two years’ ago, I purchased the book. It seems only fitting that I should be posting about Kristin on our anniversary.
This book. This book right here. That’s the one.
This book literally brought tears to my eyes. Yes, I’m a big blubbering baby. But, still! The projects are amazing and the book is gorgeous.
Kristin appears to like the social media as much as I do. I love her Twitter posts. So many encouraging quotes she shares with us. I love her work. Positively amazing. And, I love hearing about her life and all that she shares with us, including the mouth-watering things she makes for dinner and the wonderful stories about her son, “shark hunter”.
While I was
stalking … visiting my Facebook friends, I just happened to be clicking through Facebook when I spied this photo.
That is the amazing Kristin Omdahl…. WEARING my design! Oh, my goodness. I just about fell off the couch. Lucky for me, my couch isn’t very high off the floor.
Isn’t that just the coolest thing ever? A designer whom I admire like all get out and there she is, wearing one of my designs. So positively wonderful. It was a very good day.
If you’d like to get the pattern for the design Kristin is wearing, it’s free! Jump on over to the Red Heart yarns website. And, as always, Kristin’s website is available in the links to the right. Jump over there and see what she’s up to. Inquiring minds may want to know just exactly what she’s doing in that photo. Enjoy!
