Cablelicious set

After a lot of careful consideration, and one too many threats of redundancy, I quit. Yip, you read it right, I decided to take some time out and decide if Software Project Management is really what I want to do with my life. Sadly, the answer turned out to be no - but that could just be the fact that I was wearing so many different hats, and PM was not taking up the majority of my time. My biggest frustration was acting as technical lead, pre-sales consultant, account manager, web site designer, content manager, and first line support(and last resort when everyone else was on leave), all roles I was reluctantly dragged into out of a feeling of obligation. This year is the year I say NO MORE! No more people pleasing. Time to restore the joy in my life, time for me.

What this means for you: hopefully I get to post more. Probably. I might bounce ideas around of projects I want to do, or designs I'm working on. Most likely my posts will revolve around what I'm getting up to with my new Etsy shop. With Christmas fast approaching, I'm busy knitting up a storm for the family. I've decided to give the girls all a set of boot cuffs and matching hat. Two sets down, one to go. I may offer these on Etsy, once I've worked out exactly how long a set takes to knit. I keep forgetting to time it. I may even take my design notes and actually write up the pattern and put that up. Got to brush off my pattern writing skills first - nobody else will have a clue what my notes mean otherwise.
