Still Here

For the  past few weeks I’ve been working on something new, but it’s not really crafty. It’s ME! I decided it was time to get fit again, and I have been working my butt off (literally) at the  gymn near my house thanks to a nudge from a friend.

Can I whine for a minute? It’s HARD. I’m doing personal training sessions and I always think I might pass out during them. But it is amazing because I don’t, and I’m still here! It’s good, I think, to be bad at something again, if only to remind me what it is like for beginners at anything (for example, beginner crocheters). I know from my own experience teaching that all it takes is practice, repetition and dedication and I just need to remind myself of that. I have been so good about my diet too, but I won’t lie, I still hear those darn Girl Scout Cookies that I hid in the kitchen calling to me.  End whine.

I don’t have much to show you because right now I’m working on developing something that I think is really exciting–online classes! I’m going to film some with a new company called Sympoz, and they will professionally produce them, so they look all spiffy. That means that if you have always wanted to take a class with me, soon you will be able to!  And the interface is really cool, you can ask questions as you go and interact with other members of the class…. I’ll be sure to tell you lots more about it when the course is available (which will hopefully be sometime in May).  Above are some swatches I made for the class from Sublime yarns, which I love.  Full disclosure: they sent me some for free, to use in the class, but I was the one who chose it because their Cashmerino Silk DK is just heavenly.

And this pile of Berroco Pure Pima (another of my favorite cottons, but full disclosure, they sent me this  free to use in the class) is going to turn into another fun pattern for the class.  I’ll have to crochet everything twice (if not more!) so that I can have step-outs ready to go, so I’m trying to keep my schedule light otherwise.

Of course, by light, I mean, totally focused on all of the other exciting stuff I have coming up, like my next book, Little Crochet: Modern Designs for Babies and Toddlers! Y’all, I am seriously excited about this book and can hardly wait till its release date of April 5th. You can check out a little preview of it above (at Issuu). I’m totally biased, but I’ve looked at the book so many times and I still can’t get over how stinkin’ cute it is! I just can’t wait to see what you guys make with it for the little guys and gals in your life.

  • Can't wait for the new book, Linda! I'm so excited to finally see cute patterns for boys...they are usually few and far between! And classes - yay!
    And I love the Sublime yarns too...I was disappointed they discontinued the Organic Cotton :(

    Extra bummer cause I used that yarn in one of the projects in my book. Oh well!

  • Just pre-ordered the book...very excited! You have my dream job :)

    Thanks Maggie, I really tried to include a lot of boy stuff or unisex stuff.
    I didn't know the organic cotton was being discontinued- sad! Now I think there are so many organic cottons on the market that are a touch less expensive, it's probably hard to compete.

  • erin

    all great stuff! classes and a book - woot!
    (ps - i hear you on the workout thing. it's really hard getting back into it, isn't it?)

  • lindamade

    thanks erin!
    yes, it is tough, even with help. but, i am seeing results so that is worth something...
