This September was one of the best months I have had in a very long time. I try not to dwell on it here, since this is my happy place, but I’ve been really unhappy in graduate school for a very long time. And an end is now in sight. I don’t have a graduation date yet, but I do have a draft of my paper in the hands of collaborators, almost ready to submit for publication! Add to that a phenomenal time at Sewing Summit, some very exciting bits of news toward my dream of starting SeamstressErin Designs after graduating, and you get one happy Erin, in a way that I haven’t felt in a long time. September was good to me.
I got a couple different knitting projects done – a baby sweater for my very-soon-to-be-here nephew, and a Silvi sweater for myself. Both were quite satisfying to have done as Burke’s sweater was my third draft of the pattern and, although I was only working on it for a couple months, a knee length heavily cabled duster feels like quite a knitting accomplishment!
