Right here, knitting! And crocheting. A couple of weeks ago some friends had a baby and I crocheted him a sweater. My older son saw this and was very upset that the sweater wasn't for him, so I crocheted him one too and am now knitting one for my younger son, just to be fair. I knit and crochet the same way I write, which is to say I've unravelled the pieces multiple times to start again once I find a flaw or a better way to do the final piece. I'll even unravel the sweater I made for my first son and redo it as knit - because I'm getting very into no-seam raglan sweaters and figuring out how to put designs on them. It's right brain exercise :-)
Things have been exciting around here, though. I'm also in the process of getting ready to sell my book jewelry on Amazon. They approved my application! I'll take a couple of months to get everything all set up the way I want, but in the meantime, the jewelry is for sale at www.bookjewelry.artfire.com - and closer to Christmas shopping time I'll hold a sale through Artfire, as one last hurrah before we move onto Amazon.
That, and I've been reading a book I am about to resort to the nuclear option on. I will not finish it. That's really saying something because I read a lot, of all sorts of quality. I spent ten years in Critical Mass reading rough drafts of books - though I have to admit most of those were better than my final drafts. Unfortunately, I put this book down about a week ago and haven't had the slightest impulse to pick it up again and find out what happens. Oh well.
And I got a rejection letter the other day. I won't bother to list whom I'm getting them from anymore, but this was on a novella. Those are not easy to sell because they're long and I'm not enough of a name to pull readers into a magazine just because I've got 12k words in it, so this one might get me a stack of rejection letters. We'll see, though. Once I get new toner for the printer I'll send it out again.
Now back to this sweater. I've been watching Youtube videos to learn tricks to speed up my knitting speed, switched my technique from American to Continental and... yes, I'm just babbling now, aren't I? ;-)
