Too Tired to Knit + Knitting Survey

I just can't seem to get past this lull I've been in for the past month or two. The knitting mojo is definitely suffering from the long hours spent at work everyday and it's getting quite old! I miss my knitting!

I've been trying to finish up the "design process" sweater and write up my last few installments in the series, but every time I try, I get delayed a bit. Not much is left on the sweater! It's soooooo close! To keep this from being a completely picture-less post, here are some buttons that I picked up from work last week for the sweater:

It also didn't help much that I came down with a horrid cold two weeks ago due to the crazy rainy weather we've had here in NYC. However, with the weather warming up, I finally felt better just in time to catch Lolly on her visit to The Point last Friday. We've been attempting to meet up for about 2 years now so it was nice to finally cross paths.

I hope to have another installment in the design series to post this week, but in the meantime would you guys mind helping me out by taking a little knitting survey? I've been thinking a lot about my designs and expanding my pattern business lately and any incite into your knitting minds would help so much! It's short and should only take about 5 or 10 minutes, but if you're a busy bee like me and can't fit it in - could you help by passing it on to another knitting friend? Many thanks and good knitting karma will be sent your way :) You can find my survey here.

Sorry to hear you're so tired, hope work gets a little less frenzied for you. Im really sad I couldn't make it to meet Lolly Friday, AND I missed seeing you. I hope you're right about the good knitting karma - that's some good stuff :)

I know how you feel. It's easy to get into those slumps. I'm going through a blogging slump right now :P.

Love the buttons!

Hey I just finished your survey.. I'm worried that it might be a little biased because I'm yearning for a certain type of knitting write now. (I just finished one big project and am finishing up another) Do you think you could post a summary once you get enough participants? I think it would be interesting to see what is 'average'.

Hi Melissa, sorry that you're so harried at work right now. I'd actually like that but I guess is the grass is always greener on the other side, eh? I just finished your survey too. You've asked some great questions and I hope the responses you receive from people help you. I personally would love it if you expanded your handknitting line. I've loved all of your designs so far! :) Take care!

I am so glad we were able to meet, Melissa! We will have another opportunity soon, I hope :)
