It's just Business
I'm finding it really difficult to manage actual
blog writing these days. When Maya is in school I focus all my energies on writing patterns, knitting samples, or working with test knitters, tech editors, magazines, and yarn suppliers. I love being busy but I miss my gross use of hyperbole, making my usual ridiculous claims, and the snark. Especially the snark.
Maya has grown so much since she started preschool. She has learned so many new words including that particular word when we were rear ended the week before last. She has mostly passable social skills (as sociable as 3 years olds can get, it's a bit like Lord of the Flies on the playground), and wants to do everything "by myself." She has become independent just like I wanted her too. But on most days I still help her with something every five minutes. Yesterday at the yarn shop she picked out a skein of Dale of Norway Stork (good taste!) and some bright buttons. I have hope that one day she will knit right along with Mommy.
All that is a prelude to my new projects because I'm hoping to work toward writing more and less "look what I can do" or at the very least find a better balance. Fresh projects and new pattern releases are great but I'd like to return to my bloggy roots when I can.
So with that said, look what I can do!
