As much as I've been enjoying the "hat a day" bit, I realize it's not helping me fulfill what I really want to do, which is to get my sweater patterns finished and made and tested, and sized... So, at 18 hats, I've decided to stop worrying about that and get on with the sweaters. I have 12 designs to create and the promise of doing some test knitting for a friend (Hello, Brilliant designer MathewGnagy!). I'll post some pictures as they come up. Time to go through the stash to see what yarns I'm going to use.

I have a meeting coming up with a local yarn company: The possibility of one of my designs to be sold along with their product, featuring their yarn.

Wish me luck.

Cheers, all.

WOW - you have the knitting life I want. Do I have to quit my job to change careers or just knit faster ie; turn off the TV.
Mazel Tov - on the yarn company that's pretty exciting and well MathewGnagy ... I bow or swoon.

I'm a gardener in real life. When it's pissing rain, I knit. I live in Portland, OR.... so it's pissing rain A LOT.

A "Sweater a Day" seems much more work than a hat a day...but you're speedy!
...looking forward to seeing the patterns and yarn promotions...Good for you!

Good luck! Sounds like you're well on your way. And 18 hats done before January is over is plenty impressive. Can't wait to see your designs...

I love it when talented, attractive men (available or otherwise) call me babe. I need more of that in my life.

sigh...flattery will get you everywhere! I suspect a guy as handsome as you gets "babe" pretty regularly...if not...I can always say it again!!
