We all do the best we can. Life brings us all challenges and it’s up to us how we handle them. I find that for me it’s all about setting goals and having reasonable expectations to diminish any disappointments. I try to set realistic goals for myself. My life is hectic and my schedule not always predictable, but many moms know that. Still, it is important for me not to completely lose what makes me me while doing for these growing humans.
In the last few years, I have crossed a bridge from knitter to designer. It has been rewarding and stimulating and I know I want to do more and be better at it. I also know that my day job as Queen of the House and Ruler of the Nest is numero uno. I have settled on doing small and well for now. That is why I take immense pride in my sweater design Intemporelle Pullover, designed for WEBS’ 40th Anniversary Celebration.
The sweater fits my style both in terms of fashion and as a knitter. I am pretty sure that there are others for whom it will work as well too. I was thrilled to see Intemporelle featured in the newest Valley Yarns Catalog from WEBS.
I am working to finish the sleeves on mine and can’t wait to wear it!
I may have one more major design in the pipeline and will be happy with progress on my design goals. …So keep on the lookout for more.
In the meantime, it’s my birthday and I think I will host a pattern sale in honor of the day. Afterall, I can do whatever I want on my birthday! Pop over to Ravelry and grab all patterns at 20% off for the next week.
