Series: To-Do List for the Week

First of all, I would like to say this series is helping alot – the last list really helped me focus for the week and I’m happy to say I got almost everything on it done. So thanks for reading and keeping me on track! πŸ™‚

Week of March 7 – 11:

  1. Get pattern tech edited and graded. (This is the first time I’ve ever had one of my patterns tech edited and graded. I love to learn as I go and push myself to figure things out, but this pattern has multiple color charts and Knitty requires you to have aΒ pattern graded all the way from XS to 2x.)
  2. Submit pattern to Knitty once the tech editor returns it to me (This is a separate item because Knitty has a very specific format to follow and I will have to take my usual pattern layout and conform it to Knitty’s requirements.)
  3. Register and decide on classes for Vogue Knitting Live in Pasadena. (This will take a bit of configuring because my daughter has a campout that same weekend.)
  4. Sketch out ideas for a new collaboration I’m doing with Colinton Australia. (All my designs start with sketching, which comes in handy when I get about halfway through a project and start to lose focus. A visual of the original idea is the best help during a project!)
  5. Wind the yarn I just received from Colinton. (Separate item on the list because there are 8 skeins which will take more than just 5 minutes, even with a ballwinder and swift.)
  6. When sketching is done, begin knitting swatches to see if everything translates well from paper to yarn. Again, a separate item on the list because swatching includes washing and blocking. (Best way to get accurate gauge, which is a key element in writing good patterns.)
