I hadn't forgotten about my raffle for the glam pattern... I was just so busy (and then so BLAH) with the AQC stuff that I couldn't find the time or headspace to deal with it. I was also somewhat disheartened that only 2 people donated to the Red Cross to go into the draw. So....I'm sending Jen and Tanya a pattern each.
In other news, I think that the bag-robber inadvertently did me a bit of a favour. Thanks to the super-good people of Blog-and-Facebook-Land, the spread of the news about the bag has had an unforseen effect.....
Ok.... so it doesn't actually mean BEST SELLER*... but it's nice to be at the top of a list! I'm embracing positives here.
* It just means that people are looking at this this page.
Right now, my number 1 priority is to relax and unwind... spend time with the wee girl... see how much chocolate I can consume... stuff like that. The theft of the bag brought up a lot of hitherto unaknowledged grief, stress and exhaustion. For once, I'm not going to plough on through it. I'm going to stop for a few more days.
I've re-started the re-knitted, dyed machine-knitted project. Hopefully this time it will fit someone larger than a newborn.
Oh, and by the way.... If you'd like to learn to knit, why don't you join the Beginners Knitting course that the wonderful Jules is teaching in my space through the winter? We have a lovely warm room (with SIX NEW DAYLIGHT LAMPS.... which I'm LOVING!!!), music, food (and I'm thinking a glass of wine would also be nice...) and conversation with other knitting novices. Jules will be able to give you lots of attention and gently lead you step-by-step to well-beyond-scarf-knitting. Go on.... treat yourself!
