Rules for Feeding the Stash

Friday, January 25, 2019


Sometimes, designing feels easy. Last week I conceptualized, knit, and wrote a pattern in four days. This was an outlier, and will almost certainly never be repeated.

On Wednesday, I made a breakthrough on a shawl concept I've been working on for over two years. Certainly, most of my patterns don't take me quite this long to figure out, but I've been struggling with this one for a long time, and I was really worried that I'd never figure out the right way to turn this idea in my head into an actual, tangible object.

It's moments like this when I really love designing. I love puzzles, and this feels like finally figuring out a particularly challenging one, and it's so satisfying.

Plus, it doesn't hurt that this means I finally get to knit up this super dreamy yarn.

  1. I hear ya! Sometimes it’s like falling off a log. And sometimes it’s like gnawing at that log FOREVER. Have fun!
