5 am is the new 6 am!

For whatever reason, my toddler has decided to change his wake up time from 6 am, to 5 am. To say the least, this has been BRUTAL on me. Why does that one hour make such a difference. I feel like I spend the first 3 hours of my day in some sort of mental fog. I must retrain him for 6 am. I am by no means a “morning person” the way it is! I am a night owl. Night owl + early wake up= bad!!!!

Oh well! So, what’s up on the design front? Oooh lots of exciting things. I basically took December off. I had too much to do. Seriously, December was not kind. It wasn’t until around Christmas eve when I was so overcome by an idea that I had to get it down to at least putting it on paper. I sat down and sketched at least 30 things. It’s like my mind just opened up. Christmas stress was over and ta-da! I cast on for what would become Cadenza (the un-named scarf and shawlette that I posted last time). I finished that and immediately cast one for a second version. I am excited for these. I have been wearing the scarf pretty much constantly since we finished the photo shoot. It is really pretty, warm, and so luxuriously soft. I just adore Malabrigo Silky Merino. I adore it so much that I chose it for the upsized version of the Little Momo. Yes, I think I mentioned that. Maybe not. I will be upsizing the Little Momo to adult sizes. I am working up the protoype now and it’s going very well. The Silky is a dream to work with and I can’t wait to share this with you!

Until then, I thought I’d share a couple of pictures of the Cadenza from the photo shoot.
