Without any sort of push from me, this break has become swallowed up by designs. That might be part of why I’ve been feeling a little stressed: there’s this sensation when I’m designing that it has to be perfect, which seems to lead to a lot of ripping. Let’s not even talk about the stress from writing patterns. Anyway, I think I’ve come up with some great ideas. There’s the stitch pattern that I showed you guys a while ago. I guess it’s time to admit that it is becoming a hat! I don’t think I’ll release this pattern too soon: I’m envisioning it as part of a collection. We’ll see 😉
And then there’s this shawl, which is currently blocking on my floor. Hopefully I’ll be able to finish getting this pattern written up in the next couple of days before I start looking for test knitters. This is a Knit Picks design in their Imagination Sock Yarn, and I’m actually very pleased with how it is turning out.
Last but not least, there’s this little garter stitch-cable number. I’m not even going to say what it is, except something that is DRIVING ME CRAZY. I know that it will be amazing when it is complete, but let’s be honest- that’s a far way off. A far, far way off.
Well, that’s my current WIP’s. I’m going to enjoy our strangely amazing weather! For more inspiration, check out Tami’s.
