When you are a stay-home-mom, you have days when you feel like you’re worth is so disregarded. Yes, you have the enormous task of raising another human being into a responsible, strong, happy,(I could continue…) smart adult but I don’t really think that anyone that hasn’t actually spent the day repeating the same game or lesson or song over and over and over gets the exhaustive level of commitment and dedication that requires. It is also easy to forget sometimes the things you loved before the 300th repetition of the ABCs. Well I haven’t forgotten and don’t intend to.
A few weeks ago I saw a pattern for an absolutely amazing color work sock on Ravelry and immediately contacted the designer. The pattern was written in Norwegian. Of course I asked when the English version would be available and was told it was in the works but would take a while. Ok, no problem. It’s not like I don’t have 20 other projects on needles and/or on the waiting list.
That said, about a week later the designer Ann (rav name Pinneguri) emailed me and asked if I would be interested in copy editing the English version….WOW!!! Not only was I excited, I was so super honored to even be asked. It may seem so simple, but I honestly felt just a bit important.

Aren’t they gorgeous?! They look complicated but they are so not…give them try…I’ll post my own pair soon. I’m long overdue for some 2 color action.
It’s also really NICE to see my name on such an amazing pattern.
