I’ve so enjoyed being part of Malabrigo’s Quickies programs these last few years. Tweedy Toppers fits into the Joy of Knitting theme because of how much fun designing (& knitting) these Quickies are! The call, the submission, checking the email for the “ya” or “nay” and then celebrating with cameramom and cameradad when the “ya” news comes in. Keeping the secret until the release is definitely a challenge! As I work on the project I frequently announce to the family room, I’m “Miss September” this year ;-).
