It’s been a busy spring — I can’t quite believe it’s April on Friday! And like most busy times, particularly with design deadlines looming, I’ve neglected the blog in favor of some fast-and-furious (but never quite fast-and-furious enough!) knitting: There are lots of exciting sweaters happening in the Cardipalooza thread…

Sometimes, with no real warning, rhyme, or reason, my writing mojo is gone. I’ll sit down here at the computer, and try to work through a tutorial update, or a blog post, or fleshing out the outline for my next book, and find myself staring off into space instead. And…
