side of swatch

August 16, 2010

this month,
i’m working a bit more than usual.
if i’m honest, it’s a lot more than usual.
in addition, i haven’t been sleeping very well.
the combination finally hit me last night; i felt unbelievably tired and ill.

i crashed.


and slept for roughly 13 hours.

the upside to this?

i woke up super early,
have time to eat my fave breakfast in town,
and write a little post to you all.

first order of business,
on the northern summer shawl front,
the downside to being one of the first people to knit something?
you’re gonna end up being a second round test knitter.
there’s been some serious stress over stitch counts,
and i’ve sent two e-mails now about errata.
the designer has been very kind,
assures me she’s working on it.
i still want to cry a bit.
in a good way.
i swear.

i say,
if you want to knit this too,
(and you should. it’s gorgeous.),
wait a couple weeks till it’s been debugged
and charted.

dear god give me a chart!

my breakfast has literally just arrived,
so the second and last order of business shall be this sneak peak:

my rhinebeck swatch.

isn’t it gorgeous?! i’ve fallen pretty hard for it.
which pretty much ensures it’s gonna break my heart, right?

    OH, Steven! Your Rhinebeck sweater is going to be INCREDIBLE! Hopefully it’s a tender lover and not the torturous type.

    I love the swatch!

    And believe me, I’m crying a little with you while you work on the shawl. Mostly because I see the pain you’re in.

    Steven, that swatch is phenomenal. I can’t wait to see the finished product.
