I just realized the time and thought I’d better quit with the email catch up and start the post before it’s tomorrow.
Not a whole lot happened knit-wise.
Drusilla was released on Sunday this week. I need to start marketing her so some sales roll in. I’d be happy if they trickled in! Releasing a pattern then hitting the road early the next day is not ideal. I’ll have to time that better next time.
Elspeth sample 1 is almost done. All that’s left is weaving in the ends and sewing on the button. It would be finished but my couch ate the button and I had to find another that would fit the buttonhole.
Both photos show the sample with twenty-five business cards within the envelope. Tomorrow I’ll finish her up. Then I’ll start sample 2 of both Elspeth and Damia Cowl. This cowl sample is to be my gift for our department Christmas gift exchange. The party is around the 18th-I don’t have the exact date but my boss pulled my giftee out of a cup on the phone so I would know who my gift was for. I’ve known this woman over twenty years, she’ll appreciate a handmade gift.The yarn is chosen.
I just have to start both projects so they’re ready to take on the road back to Thunder Bay Sunday. I see the neurosurgeon Monday morning. I hope to get some more Christmas shopping done while there. This time it’s just me and Mum going so I’ll hopefully have more time to knit.
I hope to put out tester calls for both designs soon but I know the timing is bad so close to Christmas. I may get them tech edited first then test or publish after tech editing. Joeli has already said she should be able to edit them this month. Then I could get them published by the end of the year. We will see…
