WIP Wednesday ~October 12th, 2011~

I'm still working ridiculous hours in the lab for the third week in a row.  Everything that's not labwork in my life is taking a huge hit. (You have to give my SO credit for being a very patient man.)

The left sleeve of Vivian has grown about three inches, but that isn't very exciting.  I've finished the sample of design I sneak peaked during a WIP Wednesday a few weeks ago. However, I haven't been home during daylight hours, so no pretty pictures of it. I hope to have a few to show by Friday, and hopefully send it out for test knitting not long after that.

So, what do I have to show my few, but faithful, readers? A swatch! Yes, a swatch.  I'm not happy with it quite yet. I'll probably prepare a larger one with a few more repeats. I'm preparing a proposal for a new design to Knitpick's Independent Design Program.  It'll be my first submission, and right now just for yarn support.

I know this sounds a bit odd, but I feel like my background in Academia will really help with this proposal. After all the grants and fellowships I've prepared, or helped prepare, I have a lot of experience in giving concise 1 page proposals.  These grants and fellowships have also prepared me to receive a lot of rejection.  It's all part of the game.

Come back Friday for the big reveal! ...if I can escape the lab...

And if you want more WIP Wednesday fun, remember to check out Tami's Amis.


  1. I like your design and will be waiting for a bigger sampling! I hope you get the Knitpick's position!!!

  2. oooh a swatch! i have yet to make one of those. I love the color you'll be using.

  3. ooooh - good luck with your design! what excitement!!

    hope you're able to escape the lab, i'm excited to see the big reveal! :)


I would love to hear what you think!
