I think I'm going to have the little lamb pattern available by Monday, I'm still tossing names around. I was thinking maybe "Mary...was a little lamb", since one of my husband's grandmas is named Mary. Or names that start with L, like Liza- one of my closest friends in grad school, and who ended up having her two children within a couple of months of mine being born, and in opposite order. There were actually 2 Liza's who were friends in grad school, only the first one pronounced it like Lisa and flipped out on me thinking that I was trying to steal her boyfriend (I SO wasn't interested, of for that matter, would've ever done that to a friend if I was) so there went that friendship, and now that name has pluses and minuses. Maybe Lana, which is Spanish for wool, which I think works a bit better, and it's sort of clever, which I get a kick out of.
I was thinking of an S name that belongs to a person who I absolutely adore and admire, and was actually my boss, the first and only time I ever worked full-time, she is the head of the Reference department at a private university in Los Angeles and is the absolute *best* boss ever. At least she was to me. I wanted to do an S, but to me this little doll looks more like a lamb than a sheep.
I got the sweetest compliment from a knitter that I'm thinking found my little lamb over in my Ravelry projects- she said that it'd get a lot of knitters crocheting. Totally my agenda, just don't tell anyone!
I also wanted to comment on an earlier post, I think it was from last week when I was talking about converting my patterns to booklets. I don't think I'll ever offer them myself that way, it's too much work for me if I were to do that. I enjoy sending the .pdf's as attachments so much more than having to stuff & address envelopes. The reason I was going through the process of converting my patterns to booklets is for yarn stores who are interested in selling the patterns through their stores. Then if someone wanted to buy a paper pattern from a specific yarn store, they could either order it online from them, or get it from the store. Also, one store is planning on making kits, so I'll definitely let you know when and where those are available.
I'm anticipating having a bit less time to crochet too. My husband is pretty fit, and let's just say that I'm not quite as fit as he is. Okay, I'm really not fit at all since having my babies, and since today is 6 months till our anniversary, I've decided to try to become more physically active. Maybe by our anniversary I'll be in better shape, but I started up again tonight and I just know that my legs are going to buckle a lot tomorrow. Dang it. Well, on that cheery note, I'm off to bed. G'night.
