New Game Plan

Last Sunday I sat down with my planner and scheduled my knitting time for the week. Eight to ten Monday after monkey goes to bed. Ditto for Tuesday. Wednesday - no monkey; hence, three hours. Thursday - one hour, after teaching a crochet lesson. Friday, 8 - 10 p.m.

Well, it didn't quite work out that way - for example, I slept for twelve hours Wednesday night - but I managed to finish a black shrug for a client in Berkeley Heights. I based it on the Bell Sleeved Shrug and made it in Marisol T'ika.

By the way, the gorgeous model at above left is the cultural guru herself, Katie.

This week I MUST finish the Kaino vest for another client in Rhode Island. She has been patient with me for many weeks, and is also awaiting a cardigan. That will be next week's job.

The week of Nov 17 I will work with laser-like intensity on this awful pink cardigan for a woman in Texas. Awful because there is no end in sight to the amount of pink yarn that will pass through these fingers.

With any luck, the beginning of December I will make and finish the hat I promised a woman in Australia. And THEN I am knitting for myself! For my career!! For 2009 craft shows.
