|My WIPs basket. Green design sample and Morning Latte Sweater.|
Know what I hate? A migraine. I have had a migraine for over two days. Damn you hormones. It will not go away. I take migraine pills to dull the pain and make myself functional, but it hasn't gone away completely. It makes me a bit irritable. I just wanna lay down and sleep for a while. Alas...I can't.
Upcoming things and what I am working on:
- I have a pattern coming out in mid-September. This has been in the works for a little over a year. I can't discuss it until the day it is released, but I am SO excited about this one. I will be having a blog giveaway for the book that includes my pattern. So, stay tuned for this if you would like to win a copy.
- On September 6th or so, I will learn if I have made it as a finalist in the hat design contest I entered over the Summer. I am crossing my fingers. I am also working on writing up the pattern for the hat I designed, this week. If my pattern/hat is not chosen. I plan to release the pattern myself, on ravelry.
- I am working on a design sample and pattern for another book. I can't share much on this, but I have been knitting like crazy to get this sample done. It's a lot of lace and counting stitches. This sample occupies a lot of my design time right now. If I am not online, doing housework, family time, etc...I am knitting on this project.
- I have a few design sketches and idea notes for new designs. I am backed up, it seems. Creativity comes when it will. I just try to write it down and or draw it out...as to not forget it. When I get busy I tend to forget small things.
So, aside from the never ending migraine this week...all is well. I will be back to normal in a couple of days. Back to "work." Ummm...knitting on my green sample. I use the quotations for "work," because is it really work when knitting? I love what I do and it hardly seems like work, most of the time. The working part for me is the writing of the pattern and tech editing. The knitting...is not work. Lol.
I am busy, busy, busy...I keep forgetting what day it is. Just slap me with, "IT'S TUESDAY the 27th!"
School registration is tomorrow, for the Teen. She is registering as a Senior. One more year of high school. It's going to be a crazy, insane, busy and expensive year...Prom, Pictures, Yearbook, Graduation, College Applications, Fees, etc. (groan)
Okay, one thing at a time...Yeah, what day is it again?
