About five and a half weeks away is the Winter Solstice, and I am working like an ox to get this here tam up and running ahead of the holidays so knitters can knit it for the holidays. As soon as I finish knitting the prototype here I’ll be done & dusted ; I’ve got the pattern all ready to go, charts are drawn and redrawn, then drawn again, and so I am confident that the Up & Coming is going to be ready in a blink. It is certainly a significant personal accomplishment in the wake of a couple of years where my creative brain seemed to be on vacation somewhere far away. It will be knit, blocked (that is, put into a lovely tam shape and un-wrinkled so to speak), then photographed . . . all in the next couple of days. This is it, the pressure is on . . . and I am on it !
Very soon, very soon, I will present this holiday design owning a bit of spiritual nuance and a jolly lot of cheer!
