Thanks to all of you for the encouragement and the good vibes sent my way about the book proposal. I am pleased to announce that the package arrived safely and in one piece...it was held hostage for a day at customs, but it was finally released! Most importantly, the publisher liked all the items sent! I still do not know the final decision yet, but at least they liked the items, so that is always nice to hear.
Now that the loom knitting marathon is over for a little bit. I decided that I need a little bit more excitement in my life, since I am in Utah, and we do have some of the best powder on earth. I might as well get fit and enter the olympic games. What should it be--skiing? luge? snowboarding? skating? Oh, I think I will go with knitting. Oh wait, that is not a qualified sport, but it should be, it is winter, we all need something knitted--right?!?
Since sports are not my thing and since there is no one flashing a big burger at me to make me run, I am entering a competition where there is no pain involved: the 2006 Knitting Olympics!
My challenge: The Hourglass Sweater from Last Minute Knitted Gifts.
Where is the challenge in this project?
1. Never knitted a sweater of my "size".
2. Work full time
3. Have two lovely little imps who distract me every time I try to knit!
4. May be writing a book by that time
