I just wrote and erased a whole post full of me whining and complaining about having too much to do and being behind and overwhelmed . . . and then realized that almost everything I have to do is stuff I really really want to be doing and I shouldn't be complaining!
Ever since I quit my "real job" and went out on my own I've been swamped, true, but I was swamped before and miserable for a large part of every weekday. Now I'm swamped because of my own projects and things I really want to be doing! I really shouldn't be complaining, even if I am exhausted ;o)
I think I'm starting to catch up with everything and hopefully next week you'll see some of the fruits of my labor the last few weeks . . . I will definitely have one new (free, and small!) pattern for you and hopefully a second one, too. I also am nearly finished with my first-ever quilt design (I know, I know, I'm nuts) and am about to launch a Kickstarter campaign to raise money for Quiltfolio . . .
And because everyone knows you can't have a blog post without a picture, here's how much I've knit on my new sweater design in the Madelinetosh Sport I showed you in the last post:
I absolutely love it. Knitting gorgeous handpainted yarn in the round with cables might be the ultimate knitting experience for me. A great reminder of why I started designing in the first place!
