In process -- April 2014



First Draft

“Limering”. Around 50,000 words.
“As light as a bird”. So I had written a couple of thousand words (!) of notes, while sitting in teleconferences and the like. I typed them up into something like a draft of a short story. 

Editing


“Wind/Water/Salt”. Still working on “don’t look back Draft 2: Plot/gross story structure.”  Maybe half done. In the first draft, the middle is the hard part. In the second draft, not so much. It’s mostly deleting.

Knitting


“Kaffeklatsch” (self-designed).  Now have 6” of body; should just push and finish the wretched thing. It’s not like I can wear it until fall, but whatever.
“St. Anthony’s Ribbon” (self-designed). Occasionally knitted two rows while standing around. Considering the rows are 12 stitches each, this was not a big time commitment. I’m still on the first sleeve. 
“Ceremonial Armour” (Kaffe Fassett, knit from a photo).
 Ignored.
Portree” (Martin Storey Scottish Collection). I'm on the second sleeve. It will be done this weekend. There’s something about the fear of running out of yarn that really propels a project forward. I guess that’s dramatic tension, knitting-style? 


I also sewed a skirt.
