The book may or may not ever get published (I'm still rooting for you, Rachel!) but my design was very kindly returned to me last night, along with some gentle encouragement in hopes that I would publish it myself.
I'm still not sure what I'm going to do with it at the moment.
Other than finally share it with you all!
Just a teaser til I figure out exactly what to do.
It's exciting and daunting all at once. I'm not sure I have it in me to be a designer so this may be the first as well as the last thing I ever create. It's hard to put yourself out there (Will ~ now I know exactly what you were talking about with BRRH!!). Is it worthy??
I have dozens of pictures of the ten samples that I knit and gave away as Christmas gifts last year, but for now, these are the only two I'm going to share. (If you're wondering, this place is my destination on those daily walks, and I felt like Jared Flood the day I took the photos. The weather was not the best, it was December and I thought the beach would be deserted but I was wrong. I had so many people stop and ask me what I was up to...and where they could buy my knitting...I was embarrased and proud all mixed in together!)
So, what do you think? I'm relying on some honesty from my favorite knitting peeps about whether to put it up on Ravelry or tuck it away and stay in the warm safety of total anonymity (which is completely my comfort zone!). Should the cat stay out or shall I stuff the poor thing back in the bag and just let it be?
That's it for now ~ got some thinking to do...
ponder ponder ponder :)
edited to add: while I was writing this, it was raining so hard you couldn't see outside...and just when I posted, the house across the street's drain pipe to our shared creek plugged up, the creek overran and we had about 8" deep and at least 20 feet wide of incredibly fast river run across the road right into our driveway. Our garage and shed and backyard...completely flooded. Oy. Life has it's ups and downs, doesn't it. Glass half full, glass half full, Melissa ~ ok, the boat just barely didn't get knocked off it's stand & I was able to prop it back up til Jason gets home from the Seahawks game, Dozer didn't get swept away, I met our next door neighbor (finally) after 14 years (and she's nice) and I only got completely drenched from head to toe one time by a car that didn't bother to slow down thru the rapids that I was trying to take pics of for insurance (the man was nice enough to show me one of his fingers when I soaking wet hollered for him to slow down!!) :)
