Finished Projects

I am so excited.

I have finished a project that I have been working on for over 2 years. Well, ok, it's not really completely done, but the hardest parts are done.

I have knit and written 24 original patterns for a big pattern book.

But it's done. I do still have to do some pattern editing, and get everything sent to the publisher- but that's the easy part. It's almost done. All the photos are taken, just waiting for some to be edited. Then it's up to the publisher.

I know it's still quite a ways away from being in print, but my big part is pretty much done. And I 'm very pleased with the end results.

All 24 of them.

I hope you will be too.

Family Fun on the River

Last Saturday, we got to go play in the sun on the Columbia with some dear friends of ours.

It was a very special memory building time. None of us had ever been on a sailboat before, and our friends took us out in theirs. We sailed (ok, motored- there was no wind) from (almost) the I-5 bridge to underneath the I-205 bridge and back. It was a perfect sunny, quiet day for it.

Also last week, I wrote the last pattern for my book! I still have to finish knitting a sleeve, do a couple seams, and sew in the zipper for a photo shoot, but the pattern is written! Almost done! A week to remember.
