Hey, how about a less wordy post for a change? How about some projects?
The first is a knitting project that I actually finished a while back, and have been meaning to share.
This is the sweater that made my sweater coat jealous.
The sweater is Jane, from Custom Knits by Wendy Bernard. The bottom portion of the sweater as written is designed with a chevron pattern; I decided to try something lacy instead. I used the lace pattern from the Lacy Skirt with Bows that I knit from Greetings From Knit Cafe.
I’m happy with how it came out. (Just don’t tell my sweater coat how much more often I wear this one.)
More (typically) ramblesome details here for you Ravelers.
I also have a writing project to share. I have a new essay in the November/December issue of Natural Life magazine. This is the second time running that one of my essays has been retitled for publication–I originally named this piece “Homeschooling My MFA” (and I have to say that I prefer the cheekiness of that title.) In the essay I look back on nearly twenty years of trying to teach myself to write–and realize that what I’ve been doing looks a lot like what my kids do as homeschoolers.
