I know. It has been a long time coming.
I finally got up the courage/found the heart to finish writing, editing and testing Strong Heart. It’s ironic that in a pattern I’ve named “Strong Heart”, I sort of lost heart in finishing it. I still find releasing patterns a terrifying business.
This week, sternly telling myself that if I did not get the thing finished, I’d miss winter entirely, I finally picked up my needles and began a third version.
I am really, really happy with this version!
I have finally ironed out the thumb detail that I wanted.
Won’t be long (truly!)
In case you’re wondering, this test version is in Zealana’s amazing Rimu. This colourway is called Riverbank (R03). I swear, it’s utterly, and totally gorgeous. So incredibly silky soft, so warm, so… why did it take so long for me to actually knit a proper thing in Rimu!!?? (I know why… it’s because I’ve been hoarding it! ;-))
I anticipate it will be the weekend’ish when the pattern is out, depending on how my week goes.
There will be a small contest to celebrate me getting up the courage to release another pattern. I bought several balls of Rimu because I love it so much. Perhaps I might share…
Guess I’d better get back to pattern writing!
