I'm close to the middle of my book creating process...and I'm a little beat.  I've been knitting constantly on my new designs for over 6 months, plus taking photographs of models wearing my designs AND writing up the patterns.  I'm not quite at the stage yet where i can start formatting the patterns into the book template.  If all goes well, I should be able to start that part in early June.  Right now, I'm working on creating the lace charts and having my patterns test knit.  I hope (HOPE!) I can keep up my motivation till the end.  I thought that creating a second book would be easier than the first, but I was oh-so-wrong.  I have to admit.
