Summer holidays have flown past, it seems like we have only been away from school for two weeks, but then I look back and think of all that we as a family have done this past six weeks and wow, what a lot we have packed in. Katie has grown, I know that having that special 10th birthday and being ‘double digits’ as she tells me, is quite the milestone, but she has shot up! The birthday fairy seems to have given her an appetite for sewing. I am sad that knitting is not her passion, but she is young, there is plenty of time for me to show her the error of her ways.
From a Knitting Image perspective the past six weeks have seen the blog and twitter up and running. My first pattern independently launched, thank you to all those of you who have downloaded Disco Dave, I am looking forward to seeing your little monsters appearing on Ravelry. I have organised a new knitting and crochet group here in Southend on Sea, which I will tell you more about soon, but in the meantime you can check it out here.
A massive 18 patterns have been written and samples knitted. A number of the designs have tutorial blog posts to accompany them on release. I think I need a holiday 🙂
The new term means having to contemplate that dreaded word beginning with ‘R’, the word that offends me more than swearing, more than socks with flip flops…. Routine. I am going to have to cut back on knitting until 3am and sleeping past midday. I think perhaps I should have considered ‘Night Knitter’ as name of my blog. My plan for the new term is to work on publishing more of my designs independently. I have had a lot of emails asking for the ‘Bones’ pattern. Good new this will soon be available on Ravelry and Craftsy to download. update: now available to download
