Finally! Done with rendering, budgeting, planning and sourcing. Away from the computer and into the workroom!
Yesterday, I started drafting and proofing patterns. Once I’m through this part of the process, I can begin the sample-making. A big shipment of fabric arrives tomorrow which, I’m sure, will be inspiring. Here, looking like the dog’s breakfast, is where we are today.
In total, I have 15 patterns to make and 15 styles to sample. In addition, the DIY bags need to be laid out as they will be for printing. Luckily, Rome was not built in a day.
After standing at the cutting table all day, I’m happy to have some nice comfy knitting to do while sitting on my butt in front of TCM. (I think I mentioned Summer Under the Stars? Mmmmmm…Bette Davis today!) I have nearly completed the back of my Dundurn Cardigan. It’s looking lovely and, as it’s a DK weight, a nice respite from the heavy cables of Timberline; I’m cruising along on the first sleeve. Boy, I sure wish I was knitting the sleeves flat instead of in the round. Wonder how I’ll feel when I find myself with 200-plus stitches on the needles :-/
