This knitwear designer is checking out today. I am suffering from an acute sinus headache: the kind that sits behind your eyeballs and feels like it is pressing on them from the inside,making me feel a bit cross-eyed, and kind of queasy and slightly nauseous. Real thinking just isn’t possible.
Thankfully I’m a Knitwear Designer
I have a deadline I am working on, but I still have 10 days and I am in good shape on the project. Pattern ready for final edits and knitting nearly complete. This knitwear designer really doesn’t have anything important enough to keep pushing forward here in my studio. I am not a brain surgeon, so nothing terrible happens if I miss a few hours of work time, except that I lose time. So today I am just going to give you some of the photos from this week, and leave it at that. I’ve got nothing else.
What’s a Knitwear Designer to Do?
There are always things I can do that don’t require a lot of mental acuity and do not involve staring at Facebook or Instagram (common time fillers). I often look at the photos I’ve downloaded during the week to see if I have anything I want to include in my Friday blog, so today I took a few minutes and filed my photos for future reference. This knitwear designer will at least end the week with better organized photos.
I have finally finished a marathon coloring page and I am looking forward to doing a different one. On one hand I wish I had planned my color usage a little better, and on the other, I’m okay with how it came out. It would have helped if I had been more thoughtful when I purchased my gel pens, but I just grabbed packages without a lot of thought. This is what happens when I am hurrying (a common problem). As I got into the coloring, I did plan more, and it made it easier to work it through, but there were a lot of small spaces to color in. My next one will be selected to have larger spaces and I will plan a little better, too. I think I’ll use all tools at hand: markers, pencils, and gel pens.
My wool sneakers arrived today. I’ve not opened the box because I feel I will enjoy it more without the headache. If you didn’t know that I had ordered wool sneakers, perhaps you are not reading my newsletter. You should sign up!
I had to make an edit to my Tuesday blog. Thanks to Tanja Osswald for catching the mistake. Tanja had followed the link in my newsletter to that post. The blog is now corrected and you should go back and make sure you have read the corrected version.
