A Little News

So, we here spent most of December sick…and when we weren’t sick, we were traveling…add in the holidays and the weather…and oh my…I know it is the now third week of January here, but I still feel as if I am trying to catch up with everything in December.

I am not yet promising there will be more posts here more often yet…I am coming down with some new bug as I type…but I will be here when I can…

Update #1: Interested in something new and strange on the fiction agenda?  Then pop over to Sisters of Wyrd, where my friend Tracy and I are tag-team writing something…new and different.  This is an experiment for us, as we both dip our toes back into our passions…and share them with you…

Please keep in mind–we do not have a set writing schedule.  We post as we feel like it when we feel like it, and we won’t feel a bit guilty no matter how much time passes between posts.  I suggest you sign up to receive email notifications of new posts if you want to follow along there.

Update #2: yes, I am still working on my non-colorwork Strange Brew sweater–which should have been finished in November and wasn’t.  I finished knitting the body of the sweater during the drive out to the East Coast to visit family.  No, I wasn’t driving; I was a passenger.

Once we got back, I wasn’t feeling well and we were busy, so I didn’t want to work on the sweater and fubar it…and at the beginning of January I pulled it out, read the how to join the body and the sleeves to be able to work the yoke…and my brain skittered…I have been working on other things, because oh my gosh has January been busy behind the scenes here, and I have not yet made myself sit down and find video tutorials on youtube to help me figure this out…although I do have yarn, thanks to Christmas gift cards, for two more sweaters…so– this is coming…I swear…because it is driving me crazy not to finish it…

Update #3: that free knitting pattern…I have the pattern written out…and I am working on test knitting it–I can’t just throw out a random stitch pattern and say go…but I knit mostly at night, when the 5yo is wound up…and I get frustrated easily with yarn, so I tend to stop when things start to get rough so I don’t get too overwrought…it is coming…

Update #4: the zine…believe it or not…I have most of it done in my head already –which is great, huh…but that seems to have been my sticking point…the geez, what do I put in a zine…so I just need to sit and get to work…

Please bear with me here…a house full of sick people, a mom on a mission to declutter and detox from top to bottom, and an artist trying to make progress…plus keep up with outside appointments and responsibilities…but…I am coming along…

Thanks for joining me…
