It’s so nice to be able to relax for awhile and just knit! Now that school is out and I have no more school related obligations until August, I can focus on knitting and pattern writing. I have finished up two patterns that are in the submission process now. One should be coming out in the next 2-3 weeks, but I’ll have to wait a bit to hear on the other. I also just submitted a proposal to Interweave Knits! It’s the first time I’ve submitted to them and I was a bit nervous. I feel pretty good about the idea though, so if it isn’t accepted, I’m going to submit elsewhere or publish myself. In between secret projects, I have been working on a summer top in a very cheery color!
This is the start of Tappan Zee from Spring+Summer 2010 Knitty. I’m using Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece in the Perry’s Primrose colorway. I’m following the pattern to a tee except that I’m adding buttonholes all the way down the buttonband. I will then add corresponding buttons, even though they may not ever be buttoned. I am much further along now than in the pic. I’m into the boring stockinette body. The only thing interesting is the garter stitch buttonbands and button holes every 12th garter ridge. Oh boy! Easy knitting though.
