What a week!
Schools are back, new routines are to be learnt and there is a certain amount of adjustment as that happens for everyone. Trying to fit in designing time has been interesting and challenging but another week or two and it shall all slot into place and find its own groove.
This week I managed to get last weeks sample finished, this I consider a success for the week! No I didn’t get to start a great many other things that were planned but with the sample done I can now begin on those this week. I’ll have the photo shoot today hopefully if the weather co-operates later today for the sample knit. I need to finish adding some items to the draft pattern and it will be ready for testing later this week. I’m expecting by the time it’s edited and tested it will be on sale early to mid October.
I have a recent test knit that’s gone back to editing for its final look through and it should be coming on sale in the next couple of weeks.
What I need to do now is get started on the next sample that has been patiently waiting.
I cast on today my The Forest Moon of Endor socks for SKA September’s challenge. I’m using this Zauberball in Cafe Flair, it’s got some long colour sections so I hope the pattern will show up on these. Not much done on these so no real point in showing anything of them yet.
Later this week Blue Peninsula are having a Neckwear KAL which is running from Sept 10th through to Oct 15th. I’m going to be knitting the pattern Streusel in this hank of Sea Silk I found when doing a stash dive for some yarn. Best intentions is to finish it within the time but we shall see I just have a need to add some more shawls and wraps to my collection as they are my most worn knitted items. I might add I don’t even have a section for this on my list!!
