is where I get my knitting done these days. I have a big train-bus commute to the New Job (which is officially going "fine," but I would be lying if I said I weren't having some trouble adjusting, including a moment yesterday where I ran into a few coworkers in the kitchen and said, "I just need more work to do, you know? Do you have any work for me to do? Because I can't work like this. I need work to do. What can I do?"). So I call the commute "Ann's Knitting Factory."
Behold, 4 sleeves for baby jackets, displayed by the first shoots of our brand-new flower boxes! It's my own design, to be released in the fall. One pair of sleeves for the baby gift, one pair for the sample.
And a pair of booties, the shower gift for the same baby. I think the sole looks like an eyeball. I love it.
Ann's Knitting Factory is opening up a lot of possibilities for me. I believe I'll be able to have the collection I desire ready to publish in September... hopefully 7 patterns in e-book or magazine format. Reasonably priced. And TOTALLY UNDER MY CONTROL. I don't want to disparage publishing in magazines and books AT ALL, but there comes a point where I want full control over my yarn, my models, my photos, my layout, all of it, 100% what I want. It's coming.
