It’s Finished! Well, almost.

Posted on | April 24, 2012 | 5 Comments

This past Monday, I sent out the last batch of sweaters for my book. After working on it for a little over a year, it’s hard to believe that it is almost finished. There are still a few details to write and patterns to name, but for the most part I consider myself done!

Up next will be a photo shoot and reviewing the manuscript and tech edited patterns. Reviewing is no small task, but considering I just knit about 10 projects in about 4 1/2 months, I think I’ll make it through.

My fingers are itching to get something new on the needles and I’ve been busy thinking about what’s next. You see, I have a bit more time to concentrate on my hand knit designs now after leaving the fashion industry this past January. It’s been a very big change for me and I hope that with your encouragement and support, I will be able to do what I’ve always wanted: work for myself.

In the coming year, I hope to not only get back to publishing with Knitscene, Twist Collective, and Interweave Knits, but also publishing a bunch of new independent patterns (including the new J knit format). I’m also toying with ideas for a few larger projects as well.

And of course, I hope to get back to posting here regularly! I have a backlog of tutorials and interesting things to share with you. I hope you’ll come back and visit often!
