I saw snow flurries on my way to work this morning. What’s up with that??
After I got to the office, I saw that the sky was looking pretty dramatic.
I started a sock with my lovely Tempted Good Grrl yarn in the “Lucky Lucy” colorway.
I need a good name for it — anyone have any ideas?
I also started a new stealth project, and I’m in the middle of putting together a big pattern order for The Loopy Ewe, so progress may be slow on my bloggable project. Just so you know.
In the comments to yesterday’s post, Cindy asked:
Do you ever get ‘designer block’?
I do, from time to time. But I have a pool of potential designs to fall back on when this happens.
When I get inspiration, it usually comes by the bucketful (and usually at 1:00 a.m.), so I chart up a bunch of potential designs while my Muse is with me. Then when I’m feeling uninspired but want to start a new design, I sift through the Potentials to see if there is something that jumps out at me. Currently there are 107 potential designs in my Pending file. Not all of them are viable, of course — possibly only 50 – 60% will ever come to fruition. But I think those are pretty good odds.
Sometimes I see a skein of yarn and get a good idea of what I want it to become, though. That was true of the yarn I’m using now. I wanted columns of a dainty lace pattern that was sort of Spring-like (even though there were freaking snow flurries this morning).
Attention All Spring Flingers
Are you going to The Loopy Ewe Spring Fling later this month? Just a heads up that Sheri will not be selling my book (or Cookie A’s book) at the Fling. She made this decision partly because The Loopy Ewe does not sell books as a rule, and partly because it seems like most of the Flingers have pre-ordered anyway.
(Sheri is going to or has already posted this info on the Spring Fling board on Ravelry.)
So if you want a copy of Socks From the Toe Up and would like me to sign it, please purchase it beforehand and bring it to the Fling. I’ll be happy to sign it there.
Meanwhile, Lucy is just hanging around . . .
