There’s absolutely no way of breaking this news without it being kind of huge, but… well… I’ve left Knit Purl (as of the 15th) and have gone on to a new job. The parting was quite cordial and I admit that I already miss my former coworkers, but that sweet sorrow (as it were) is alleviated by the fact that I now have A WINDOW!
Which almost makes up for the lack of sass and snark I traded with the team at KP. Almost. I’m still texting quite a few of them, though, so I don’t go into total withdrawal.
The New Job is fun (two conference calls today, one with Australia) and is surprisingly not as different as I expected it would be.
On top of the obvious Big Change, the launch of my new pattern line is officially imminent. The date is set for May 15, 2011 – less than a month away. I should have at least 6 patterns ready by then – two more are through tech editing – plus maybe some previews of more to come. It’s all a little overwhelming and kind of scary.
I, quite frankly, don’t know how professional designers do this on a regular basis.
But that’s enough News for tonight. Time for bed!
