This is something for me to work on every day. I consistently ruin my day by worrying about the future.
Which brings me to this year in general.
Those of you who've ever worked on a truly large project will know what I mean when I say it eats you alive for a year (or more) and then spits you out, hopefully none the worse for wear. But it's tough on the way through.
That's what writing a book is like. And my upcoming book for Interweave is something I want to be very proud of, so I am putting everything into it.
That means I might not get back to you quite as quickly as I might otherwise. Even though I was working on them before I signed the contract with Interweave, other patterns might be a little late - like 7 Small Shawls Y4 and Oddments installments. I might miss a few deadlines...because I cannot miss my book deadline and because I will do the best possible job I can on everything. I am not a halfway person.
I'm asking for your indulgence for now. I will do whatever is humanly possible to finish everything on time. But I don't think it's quite going to happen this year, so...fair warning y'all. I hadn't really been planning to do a book, but we all got talking and it was just too good to pass up. Even though there was no time at all to do it in, and all of my commitments were already fixed in place. Sometimes, there is no really good time to do something important, but you want to do it anyway. :)
I hope you'll love it.
