I have always been intrigued and slightly jealous of people who do test knits for designers.
They get to see a design before it hits the world as a fully fledged pattern.
I won’t ever feel that jealousy again 🙂 Here I am, knitting a lovely design with horrible charting and badly written/over thought instructions.
It’s interesting trying to concentrate when you know your best friend’s father is lying in a hospital 15 miles away dying…literally. Either way, it’s a lovely design but the pattern is not good yet. I hope it can be improved when it’s fully released.
I am learning stuff all the time. A year ago, I was scared to use a knitting chart and swore I would always prefer a written pattern. Hah, conquered that one. Now, onto beading a knitted design as I knit it. Yup, I know I will be able to do it but haven’t done that before either.
Next, I will learn to knit with more than one colour in a row at the same time. Tracy of http://www.inkcircles.com has a hugely talented Mother, Cindy Wasner. Her http://www.norskneedlework.com designs are amazing. They are like mini or maxi (depending what you choose to knit)versions of Tracy’s charts. The Quaker hat is a must knit for me. Eep!!
Well, if I can do everything else, then, I can do that too! Watch this space but don’t hold your breath. Blue isn’t a good look on anyone.
Bye for now.xx
