Well, my mysterious illness has come back to bother me this week. I feel guilty for getting so little done, but all I want to do is curl up on the sofa with a kitty and a good book (at the moment it's "The Amazing Maurice and his Educated Rodents" by Terry Pratchett). I've been working a bit on updating a few more patterns, although they're still waiting for my husband to format them. He's been super busy at work, trying to get enough done before we go on holiday.
I'm really hoping that a change of air and scene will help me feel better. I don't want to spoil anyone's holiday by being sick and whiny all the time. I plan to make the most of our time there, visiting all my favourite people and places. With the cost of flights now, who knows when we'll make it back there again? Plus, I suspect my husband's family will be demanding a visit from us next year, and Russia is a long way to go.
After finally selling a set of printed patterns to a yarn shop, I discovered that printing is more expensive than I estimated (stupid taxes). So the price will be going up a little. I wonder how other designers manage to afford getting a few hundred patterns printed at a time? Maybe they already have the orders waiting, who knows?
In case it wasn't obvious last week, the Sea Horse pattern has been sent out for test knitting. I gave my lovely testers a month to work on it, so the pattern should be ready by mid-July. Sorry to make you all wait so long, but perhaps this gives you a chance to clear up your queue!
