Over that past few months, I've been split between my love for knitting and my other love, designing.
Now I know everyone can be a designer and easily publish a pattern, give it free or sell it, designer's choice, and that's one of the things I love about the knitting world. Some do it casually, some do it as they have inspiration, some do it full time.
This world is what you make of it, and the passion I have for knitting has been constantly evolving over the years. I've published a few patterns thus far, but I've been really focusing on putting the bulk of my time toward's designing. I have a number of patterns in queue for design, one of which is a new Spring/Summer blouse. The whole process is alot of research, alot of decisions, etc. I've made great headway over the past week, and now am finally going to cast on the first prototype. I still have WIPs sitting, waiting to be finished, and I want to finish them, but at the same time I'm torn because I need to continue work on my designs. So it's been a delicate balance, but its working for now. I do have one pattern done, waiting to release, but I need to take another photoshoot, so that's been holding it up, I'm determined to get this one out this week, so stay tuned.
I'll share my swatch for the Spring/Summer top I'm working on. This will be primarily the border for blouse.
The pattern is simple, no fancy tricks, easily memorable, and fast. I'll share my progress as I go, and some other FOs this week as well.
