two new (today's secret word is: Malabrigo)

two self-published designs are queued up and ready for release in the coming weeks!  september fingerless gloves will be available on ravelry september 1st (of course) - and the little moth shawlette soon after.  these are both designs i began working on in colorado and had put on the back burner for more pressing deadlines.  it will be so nice to finally release them.  malabrigo rules these patterns and i'm thoroughly grateful for the support the company has given me.

i also have the most amazing test knitters - ever.  these ladies are the nylon in my sock yarn.  if you're interested in joining the ranks you can fill out the form at the footer any time and will be added to the tester mailing list.

and so it goes around here - knit, write, sketch, knit, fret... ha!  working so much with magazines lately has been a blessing and also a healthy bite of challenge as a designer - but more so as a business woman and writer.  i'm pushing through the moments of discomfort and feeling that hot energy of triumph.  for someone who airs on the side of self-destruction when it comes to professional endeavors by submitting to that feeling of bigness and letting it roll me over flat, i've been standing tall and strong like a willowy sapling bending to the wind without breaking and i'm starting to feel the bigness within.
