You'll have to excuse me if I become a little absent here. I'm meeting with a possible writing job Thursday, have to start knitting baby samples at the end of this week, and really have to finish this pattern and the accompanying samples, while also doing all the regular work that pays the bills. I think I'm going to need to interrupt my natural circadian rhythm and start waking up super early.
In the meantime, happy knitting! It's getting colder here in NY so everyone should be crafting extra hard to keep warm through it. And stay tuned, because if my foray into Knitty fails, that hat pattern will be landing here asap.
