writing, editing, weaving, and a skirt fit for a pirate queen

Each Wednesday, I post a snapshot of the projects I’m working on, and where my brain is at.

weaving squares and reading through shawl geometry

After the last round of Shawl Geometry Book Three edits took an age and a half, typing up all the edits seemed to simply fly by. I’m reading through the whole thing now (not in one sitting, that was a nice fantasy!) and I’m slightly shocked but thoroughly grateful that the whole thing doesn’t suck!

I’ve trusted through the whole editing process that the final thing would be excellent (otherwise I would have stopped!) but it’s really nice to get some perspective, and have that trust confirmed in the read through!!

Next steps are notes, and edits, and then to the technical editor.

I’m still weaving piles upon piles of squares on the zoom loom, still haven’t set the handspun yarn I finished last week, and am contemplating a next spinning project.

On Who Wears Who? – after the summer 10×10 wardrobe challenge I’ve found myself reaching for tee shirts far more often than I used to, and clothes from my Self-Made Wardrobe project are still in heavy rotation. I wrote this morning about the qualities that one of my favorite skirts invoked – it’s been fantastic being able to think and write more about the pieces I made for that project, but this time from a style perspective rather than a technical one. You can read that piece right here.
