Well, once again, it’s been a while. I actually had taken photos for a few posts in the past couple of weeks. I was going to tell you all about how my brown Give and Receive scarf was progressing:
And how I’d finally cast-on for my harvest sleeve:
But, in the meantime, I finished the scarf (just have to mail it off to the recipient now):
And the sleeve is rocketing along:
I’ve also started a new project, Chocolate & Vegetables. If you’re interested in food, or just what I’m cooking & eating these days, come by and check it out.
I’m also coming to realize that while I still love knitting, the “designer” part of me is definitely going on hiatus for a while. I’m still designing for myself, but finding the large chunks of time necessary to multi-size patterns is getting harder and harder. I’ve also had some problems with wrist pain over the past couple of years, and so it seems prudent to back off on making myself knit like crazy to meet magazine submission deadlines, etc. And, hey, it turns out that full-time employment is a bit more demanding than graduate school. Who’d have thought? I’m finding that my creative juices are flowing a little more slowly, and I don’t want to start churning out bland designs just for the sake of it. I do still have lots of patterns I’d like to put out, so don’t think this is the end of me. Just slowing down, not bowing out.
