I’m usually better about doing an end-of-year accounting, but I failed this year. So I’m just going to post it a few days late.
I published another 20 patterns last year. And knit about 27 things. Not quite as stellar on the knitting as I have been in years past, but I think I’m keeping up with the pattern writing.
I’ve helped many knitters with my patterns and fielded a few who just struggled with my style of writing (you can’t make everyone happy!). I taught classes at BlackSheep and the Ozark Fiber Fling. I applied for teaching jobs at several big venues and I’m so excited to be teaching at IOLI and the Shuttlebirds workshop next year. Cross your fingers for me because I may, MAY (it’s really tentative) have the opportunity to teach at RHINEBECK!!! How amazing would that be?
I’m also writing patterns for TWO clubs for Knitting Boutique. I’m creating a separate sweater pattern for one of Dianna’s other clubs. I’m in negotiations with KnitCrate for their sock kit in late summer. Oh, and I’m working on another book. I think the knitting thing is growing quite well. 🙂
