Hello Knitters Everywhere!!
Sorry for such a long a break – But it was just what I needed and I didn’t even know I needed it.
My Husband and I moved in January to White Plains New York. It was a long slow move as we still had our house and did not have to rush out. So I didn’t.
I am not keen on change even though I like to pretend I am. Finally me my yarn and all my books got set up in my new area. I was all set to get a job and get out of the house. To take some time and knit for me and not think about designing and I did for a while… and then….. a bunch of little things seem to ignite a spark under me… but I ignored it… Then a few more things came up and added to the ones before.
One thing that helped fan the spark was, as I was meeting new people they always ask, “what do you do?” and I realized that I finally felt comfortable and that I liked responding “I am a knitwear designer”
Well Gosh Kate – If you are gonna say it, you have to do it. So….. I am working on a plan….
Keep checking in and watching your social networks… It is going to take some time, but for the first time in a long time I have plotted my course, loaded up my boat and set my sail. I hope you join me on this Journey.
P.S. I am still looking for Knitting Groups to attend, if you know of any, let me know.
HOLY COW!!! Deborah Newton the Knitwear designer, My last Big Name Designer I want to meet, my whole reason for going to Vogue Knitting Live Tomorrow- responded to my post on Facebook…. I am so gonna Fan.Out tomorrow and make a complete ass of myself-
Kinda like I did when I meet Nicky Epstein for the first time and said to her, “Do you know who you are??” She was so kind and smiled and said, “Yes I do, I am Nicky Epstein… And your Kate” (I was wearing a name tag but forgot that was, so I thought she really knew me, or was psychic…) Then she handed me a bag she had signed Just.For.ME!!!
Yeah so I am so excited and ready to make a fool of myself- so What should I wear??? Something I knit DUH… But one of my designs or just something I made, or one of my designs for sale… I have no Clue!!
Last night I dreamt that I knit a whole cardigan with 3/4 length sleeves, cool split pleated back and cable accents all out of 200 yards of fingering weight yarn. I was distressed as to what to make with the other 234 yards….
Knitting in my dreams
My posting may become spotty…
My darling Husband works in New York City, we live 98 miles away. In the interest of getting back 20 hours or more a week he loses on commuting and to get me off this big soft butt I have developed… we are moving back toward the City.
We are looking in Hoboken, Brooklyn, and Jersey City for a nice new place to call home. we are planning on moving the first of December. Plus I get the added joy of moving a 4 bedroom 2,250 sq ft house into, I hope and pray, a 2 bedroom Apartment… WOO HOO!!
So things here are hectic,hopeful, and down right overwhelming.
So that is where I/we are at.
