And Just Like That a New Design is Born
This week I have found myself rather stymied. I finished clue 4 on my Through the Looking Glass and I ran out of yarn on daughter’s cardi and have had to ordered some more from across the pond. I have several things I want to knit for myself, but I also have several new designs waiting in the pipeline either for yarn to arrive or for me to get off my backside and finish the charts. I haven’t so much lost my knitting mojo as overloaded it – it doesn’t really know which way to turn first
So what do you do when paralysed by indecision? In my case break out the stitch dictionaries and skim through them to put off casting on anything.
Next thing I know I’m charting up stitch patterns, winding yarn and casting on for something completely different – It’s a cowl – and it’s not lace.
It even told me what it wants to be called
It’s fingering weight
Gansey style snowflakes
and I’m knitting with a cashmere blend yarn
What’s not to like?
What? you want pictures, sorry, the battery on my camera has gone – maybe tomorrow
