Whoah. October has been a crazy month for me and Sheldon. Who would have thought that posting a picture of him on the Yarndale Ravelry group would lead to such exciting things. Sheldon has gone global! His popularity has been truly overwhelming, I'm so grateful to everyone who has taken the time to send kind comments about Sheldon and have loved seeing pictures of Sheldon's cropping up on the internet.
Because of Sheldon, my life of crochet has become even more diverse. I have been asked to team up with a British wool company to work on some designs, yarn reviews and all that good stuff. I can't tell you how excited I am at this opportunity. On one hand, I am a little nervous about being ready for something like this. Up until now, my crochet has been just for me, occasionally shared with my friends but mostly only to satisfy myself. What if what I do is not good enough for what they want? But I've shaken those thoughts off. When am I ever going to get an opportunity like this again? So I'm going for it, and plan on doing the best that I can do. One design is already done, and there are more to come in time for Christmas. When I can tell you more, I will do, I promise :)
Plans for October - reviewed
- Making some bunting for a friend that I've already taken shamelessly, embarrassingly long to get around to (ok, I'm going to be realistic, I have every intention of doing this, I'm just not sure exactly when it's likely to be, and probably not before christmas now)
- Starting my tunisian crochet Craftsy class - still to do, perhaps when I have some holiday from work I'll get to it
- Learning more about using my DSLR camera - some reading done, more learning to do
- Starting to think about things I need to make for christmas decorations/presents - I've made a start, but there's so much to do! Another holiday project I think
- Making a cowl for myself (well, I deserve a treat too) - stuff for me has taken a bit of back burner for now, this might have to drop off the list for now
- Trying my hand at a bit of designing (!) - well at least there's one tick this month!
- Christmas Christmas Christmas really!
Plans for November
Are your plans Christmas focused too or have you got any other things on the go this month?
