A Fine Finish

Head to Toe Knits is now officially available from Finally. A year and a half of thinking, designing, knitting, editing, false starts and fine finishes. I'm proud of what I've achieved. I have achieved book.

I've learned a tremendous amount, and, if I tackle a second book, I know the process will be smoother and the end result will be even better.

Over the last few weeks, I've been exploring ravelry more. I am amazed at the talent, creativity and productivity of the world's knitters as exhibited on ravelry; much of the time, after spending maybe ten minutes poking around, I leave, feeling humbled and awed by what I've seen. I alternate between feeling that my own creativity is being sparked and feeling that there's nothing left to design (especially by me). But that's my own doubts speaking, because I know there are still endless variations of baby sweaters and hats out there, just waiting to be thought of and knitted, not just by others but by me, too.
