Fortunately, I've got my wonderful business partner Donna, who is ready and willing to help me out with all of the non-creative stuff that I tend to put off because I just don't want to deal with it. She actually enjoys talking to yarn companies and shop owners. Not that I don't, but my introversion tends to make it something I tend not to look forward to. I don't even like calling to make myself a doctor's appointment!
February is almost over, and I'm looking forward to the arrival of March and hopefully a better outlook on life. February just generally stinks, apart from my darling daughter's birthday.
Here are a few of the pictures Blogger refused to let me put in my last post. First, my current big knitting project (a coat made out of Malabrigo that will be a plus-size pattern for my fall line):
Oh, Malabrigo, how I love thee! The unwound hank on the right is some Dream In Color Classy that will become a 'tween hoodie design. Oh, purple, how I love thee, too!
Next up, a miniature version of the shawl that Grumperina is knitting for me:
I did one repeat of the pattern and then added an edging. It's so cute! I managed to totally screw it up by working the same pattern on both sides (it's supposed to mirror) but fortunately it was just a prototype to test out some edging ideas.
Last but not least, my Tilli Tomas Rockstar cloche:
This was a totally fun little project that made great use out of one ball of this uber-expensive yarn. Look for all these designs in June!
