There is a Process

2013 has been every bit as challenging as 2012 was so far.  The good news is that I am still knitting, still designing and trying to keep the channels of creation open at every opportunity.

That means that while I am always doing something, there are many things I am also not doing.  So goes the cycle.

Regardless, I am trying to improve and keep at the things I love.

Here is a peek at a couple of designs that I am currently working on:
Thrill Ride Socks

McClean County Socks

The pattern draft is completed and test-knitting is underway for the Thrill Ride socks pattern.  I am doing final edits and will request test knitters for McClean County once the draft is ready.

While I love designing, I do find the "administrative" tasks of creating patterns to be somewhat of a challenge.  I wish there was a way to just think these patterns into existence.  This task is somewhat complicated by my very ancient PC which is desperately in need of replacing and my own personal limitations.  But I digress... I do muddle through the best I can.

I also have a Infinity scarf/cowl pattern that I may or may not get finalized and ready for publication.  I think it is quite pretty, but again, the technical side of creating the pattern is tripping me up at the moment. 

Meanwhile, the cats are keeping a close eye on my every movement...
