I’m very excited right now. I should be knitting, but I’m popping over just to blab because Yannick’s not home.
There are 2 designs I want to submit to the next Stitch ‘n Bitch book by Monday. One design is being worked through, but is taking some time as it’s…well…unique. Did I ever give this one a nickname? I think so but can’t find it in my archives. Assuming I never named it, I’ll call it Court from now on.
The other design is the one I called Plunger, the one that was delayed by the Superwash wool fiasco. By dipping into my stash to have a temporary solution, not only did I end up with a working pattern, but I managed to solve some things that were bugging me about the original design! Yes, I changed it a bit, so it’s not the first thing I had pictured in my head, but so what? I’m beginning to understand that designing is not only about creating the vision, but at times requires adaptation for what is actually possible. And I’m totally ok with this design being adapted, as I am very proud of the finished result. Go Plunger!
Ok, back to knitting!
