Remember how Knitty published my Atomic Fingerless Mitts a couple of months ago?
Well, as anyone who has anything to do with stock market investments always reminds you, “Past performance is no guarantee of future results.”
I don’t know why Amy Singer doesn’t want my cool, reversible, cabled Shire scarf, but, dingdang it, she doesn’t.
On the bright side:
- Knitty wants you to submit a publish-ready pattern, so it’s a go for my own indie launch.
- I paid off my mortgage in June, so the honorarium payment would have been used for something silly, like yarn or an Achiever t-shirt.*
- It’s not like I have to go out and get a proper job because of it.
*Yes, I’m aware of the irony of advertising myself as an achiever, when I have clearly failed in the modest task that was my charge.
To Ponder: It’s easier to learn to do without some of the things that money can buy than to earn the money to buy them. |-Dolly Freed-|
