New exciting year!

It’s a new exciting year and what am I doing? Well, knitting like crazy because, ehrm, a magazine accepted my design proposal (which is great, really, but somehow I thought they wouldn’t…), checking how test knitting works on ravelry (feeling convinced I will manage to get banned from the test forum one way or another! The forum rules are extensive…) and reading up on the new horrid VAT regulations for digital sales in EU. I mean, do they want small businesses like designers selling a few patterns every year? I think not! And after worrying about my own sales and the &()/@!?! administration needed it hits me: Probably many designers will just stop selling patterns to EU based customers! This is where all color came off my face and I’m trying to breath. I really, really hope it won’t come to this.
