I loved every stitch of it! From the first one to the last one, this little Maeve shrug has been really refreshing and re-energizing.
WIPs & FOs
I really enjoyed knitting the Dotted Rays shawl created by Stephen West and the result is even better than I envisioned it would be. It’s a HUGE warm light comfy sunny shawl which would fit perfectly in my handmade wardrobe. Love, love, love it!
With all the designs I published these past few years, I did not had or take the time to finish it and kept knitting samples instead. Which means, I have A LOT of WIPs started years ago. Well, this ends now! At the end of the year, I want to be down to only two WIPs.
Writing a pattern is far from being the final stage before publishing it. Publishing a new pattern involves a crazy tons of work. Which I’m currently postponing to write this article, because you know, sometimes procrastination is the best thing in the whole world, am I right? Right now, I’m currently working through the final stages of publishing my newest knitting pattern, the Hanging Gardens Cowl. It should be live tomorrow so I’ll better get going and finish to write these blog posts and make these photo collages. I can’t wait to show you all about it!
Sometimes patterns are easy to write, and sometimes… Well… Not that much. I like it when a pattern is simple to read and follow. I do even think that it’s a main component of my work as a pattern designer. To write crystal clear and easy to follow patterns. Where everything is logic and match.
This should have been a glorious shawl. Unfortunately, it won’t. Or at least, not as planned when I spun the yarn.
