Yarn Along (no.25): Designing

by Josée

Since the last yarn along I finished the Milo vest for my friend’s daughter and a hat for my dad’s birthday. Just recently, I’ve stepped in uncharted territory, literally. I have decided to design a skirt for Sweetpea. Thankfully she’s small so this won’t be a huge projects. The problem is, I’m mostly a product knitter, and not really a process knitter. Sure I enjoy the feeling of yarn pulling of one loop through another, but it’s the product at the end that makes my heart flutter. So, designing something on my own has been quite the adventure. I cringe every time I need to rip out a row. But, I’m determined to give it a try.

As inspiration for my design I’m using Knitting Block by Block: 150 Blocks for Sweaters, Scarves, Bags, Toys, Afghans, and More. Hopefully, I have more to show you by next week.
