It’s been pretty quiet around here at KnitDarling because I’ve been busy working away on some super awesome top-secret designs for my upcoming book. I’m so excited about each one, and it KILLS me that I can’t share them with you.
With the “half deadline” for my book just around the corner, I have been knitting up a storm –like an F5 tornado type storm (you Okies know what I mean). I have to hand over 1/2 of my patterns along with the samples in less than a month. Since I also have a full time day job, I have had to adjust my schedule to fit in the mountain of extra work. I wake up early to knit with my morning coffee; my needles are in hand during my subway commute every day; I’m busy during my lunch break, and I’m usually stitching away until midnight or later every night. I’m not complaining; I’m just happy that I finally have an excuse for this behavior!
My darling husband has been very patient, but the other night after a marathon knitting session that went far past bed-time, I found this New Yorker cartoon placed on my pillow:
Do you think he’s trying to tell me something? I’m thinking a vacation might be in order.
When is your favorite time to sneak some knitting in? I love to get up early before my husband to watch the sun-rise with some coffee and a lap full of yarn.
