"Every now and then go away, have a little relaxation, for when you come back to your work your judgment will be surer. Go some distance away because then the work appears smaller and more of it can be taken in at a glance and a lack of harmony and proportion is more readily seen."
-Leonardo Da Vinci
No, I am not dead, just MIA.
Fell last night & possibly broke right hand, other than that all is good. Took some personal time off recently - had pushed for over 3 years, working 60 hrs wk, putting out over 60 patterns.
I began yoga classes & cardio, knit something for me (what a concept), helped son get back on his feet by providing daycare to grandson, and learned to spin. All necessary to my mental health & continued artistic inspiration. Consider it a sabbatical.
I have continued working on Two Towers patterns through out the past 4 months - Helm’s Deep needs to be written up & proofed, Rohan is completed & waiting on final notes from tester who is finishing hers. Ringwraith is heading into test knit.
I really hope the hand isn’t broken - waiting for doc to return call w/ xray info. Typing this with left hand & index finger on right - hunt & peck...
If it is broken, may have to push back start date for Mithril KAL from Feb. 4th, but will try to get someone else to write up patterns so y’all don’t have to wait any longer. I think my tech editor can write them, possibly.
Will keep you posted. Now I am going to rest my swollen hand & hope I didn't just take myself out of commission - gulp
