pattern drafting and knitting.
While I was away house-sitting, I decided to spend my time learning to draft patterns. I've been meaning to do this for years, but all I really needed to do was set some time aside. I used this book and it was super helpful. Next I'm going to grade the pattern and make it up in some nicer fabric to sell. I'll probably set up an Etsy shop or Big Cartel. I'm leaning more towards Etsy, though...
Also knitted up the Red Riding Hood pattern I found for free on Ravelry. Super easy to knit and I adore it! Of course I make it just as the snow is beginning to melt. Argh. I kind of hope it gets colder just so I can wear it. Hah!
