Here is an update on my latest design, “A Winter’s Walk Cowl.” I’m on the last skein of the x-large size, and though it’s been fun, I am really looking forward to casting off. The weather here in Atlantic Canada is still “bite-your-@rse-off” cold, so I should have a few more weeks to wear it. That is, if I can pry it out of my dear daughter’s hands!
This design has been quite the adventure. Finding the perfect stitches, swatching, knitting the samples… I love the journey of designing, but when you hit that final button on your keyboard to release a pattern into your shop… Magic! And a sigh of contentment. But that feeling lasts only for a short while, because a skein, a photo, a stitch pattern or a book will suddenly spark the imagination and back to the designing table I go!
