It is freaking me out how much of my experience and knowledge gained from testing software can be applied to knitting and to my ultimate goal of making my living from knitting, sewing, crocheting, embroidery and other fiber arts. One of those "connecting the dots looking backward" things. Steve Jobs is one insightful, wise dude. (See this speech, if you haven't read my earlier posts and have no idea what I'm talking about).
So what am I knitting currently? I finished my daughter's mittens and have one partially embroidered. I'll finish that this weekend. Now I'm knitting the front of a pillow case for my younger daughter, which I'll embroider, then sew together with the back half (soft, satiny fabric), sew on a zipper and voila, a personalized, totally unique, handmade pillow. I have another pillow case for my older daughter in the works, too.
I love combining multiple fiber arts!
