Thanks for the kind comments about the show!

I've been reading Maggie Righetti's Sweater Design in Plain English. Why have I not read this before? A lot of useful stuff in there. The part I got the most out of now were the parts about different body types and designing appropriately for them. Good information on sleeve cap shaping too, which always gives me fits in that round peg/square hole way.

Lots of busy, fun and creative things going on in my knitting world these days; I'm really happy with where I am with it. My 12 child-free hours a week (and more!) are definitely being filled by the various projects I have going. I almost feel like I should be making some sort of flow chart of what needs to be done when, but it's just below that mark and I still feel like I can work on what moves me when it moves me and still be moving everything forward. Knitting, editing, designing, thriftshopping. What shall I do today?

end of summer?

summer's over. or that's the theory. it still feels like summer here.

the new issue of Knitty is out. it's perhaps the best issue yet. and with the publication of Leo, the whole family has now appeared in Knitty's pages.

the girls have started school. zoe's in second grade. her teacher is (gasp!) a "boy". eleanor's started preschool 3 mornings a week and has settled into her first week just fine. this means i have 3 "free" mornings a week. which i've had very little trouble filling this week. it's all bonbons and pedicures from here, right?

and maybe i will have more time to post here.
