My Adult Mermaid Tail Afghan is such a fun project and has become wildly popular in the crochet community! I was contacted by the editor of Craft Ideas Magazine to be a contributor in their summer issue. They recently published my Mermaid Tail Afghan along with links to my blog and social media.

This is an exciting turning point for YARNutopia as this is my very first print publication for crochet. As a personal side note, getting this recognition and seeing this in print has filled me with a profound thrill. Knowing that this will be on newsstands across America is pretty epic for me! As I make these steps in my crochet career, this helps validate that I’m doing *something* right. It truly has humbled me to receive such positive feedback for this pattern. I’m very excited to realize this hard work has earned me some merit. I may have squealed something high pitched and danced around my living room when I received the email from the magazine editor asking me to participate in this issue.

This issue will hit newsstands on June 21st, 2016, but I was recently sent the digital copy to share with all my YARNutopians. Browse through the issue and flip to page 38 to see yours truly! Tell me what you think!
