I only have one big thing to do this week: Finish writing my parts of “Knitting in Lithuania: Continuing Traditions” and turn the manuscript in to my editor. It seems like just yesterday that I conceived of this book, met my co-author, and dreamt of visiting Lithuania. Now I am filling in some blanks and smoothing out some lumps in a manuscript. I always find the creation of a book to be somewhat miraculous. I love making something concrete where there was nothing.
