    It is very quiet here and all of the lights are out.  I was snuggled up in bed between my sleeping husband and the purring Dex cat.  But I felt the call…no, the drive.  It was so strong it pulled me out of bed even though it is nearly midnight.  So now here I sit in the soft glow of my computer monitor while the rest of my world sleeps.  What am I doing, you ask?  Knitting.  I snuck out of bed to sit up and knit by the light of the computer monitor where my pattern is carefully plotted out on an excel grid.  What drew me out of bed at this hour you ask?  I will share my secret with you:  I have been working to design my own original pattern.  I have been inspired by all of the lace knitting I have been doing lately and wanted to design something of my very own.  After many fits and starts, I think I finally have most of the kinks worked out of the design.  Well, maybe.  I know that I will not be able to sleep until I have it all worked out.

  • I am just so excited for you! Are you going to try to get it published??? Are you going to share progress or even a tiny little peek? PLEEEEEEAse? =)

  • Thanks for your enthusiasm. I am not yet overly excited, because when I examined the sample knitting I had done in the light of day I saw that it just would not do. So, I scrapped it and went back to the drawing board. Again. I have drawn up another more workable-looking version, but have not reconciled all of the math. The math may do me in. When (if) I get a workable swatch I promise to share an itty bitty sneaky peek.
