I have finally done it. Tipped the edge into designing my own THINGS from scratch.
Ok, I have started with one of the easiest things -scarves. BUT these puppies are fairly complex, one is convertible and reversible, and get this…I actually modified a stitch pattern significantly to create something completely and utterly new! How exciting is that?
I am thrilled.
(Yes, actually, I AM a nerd, thank you. I have watched/read more than my fair share of fantasy/sci-fi and get really engrossed in technical details that make others snore. Thing is, if you are reading this blog, you likely are too. Heh. So there.) 😉
The great thing is – the whole idea came about from an ill considered stitch count in a previous swatch and a call for submissions. Chance and impetus. It is so satisfying when things just come together like that…it has been much too long on the creativity front!
I am not going to jinx it by giving more details of the project, but fingers crossed that one of the 3 (yes, 3 designs in as many days! I was ON FIRE!) submissions gets in.
