Slow Progression

It's been one of those weeks. One where all my best laid plans did not pan out. I had some good news and some bad news. But I'm keeping on. I'm constantly surprised at which of my patterns do well and which do not. I wish I knew the secret formula. I'm in an odd place. I have submissions that I'm working on. But my brain is over-loaded with ideas. I need to get them all on paper, finish my submissions and come back to them. But before I do, I wanted to show you the next step in the evolution of my Ink Madtosh Sock shawlette...

This is about the fifth swatch I've done. I knew what I wanted with the body pattern. But the edging is giving me gas. Here it's nearly what I want. But there a couple of places where the yarn-overs aren't lining up quite properly. And I want to flush things out with a bit more garter to outline things. So I will re-chart and then I will write the pattern. And then it's test knitter time!

But for now I'm putting this down. I need to make some progress on my submissions. If only I could figure out how to get this all done. I think I might need a taskmaster!
