There’s a bit more done on the shawl this week:
I’m almost done with repeat #7. I guess there’s only a little bit more done on it, after all! I’m dividing my knitting time between about 3 or 4 projects, so each one is going slowly! I need to pick just one and work on it till it’s done, I think — but I get bored too easily so that probably won’t happen anytime soon!
I’m almost done with my sweater design sample/prototype. I’ve started writing the pattern in earnest today – I’ve been keeping notes as I’ve been knitting, so that will help, but this is my first pattern where I need to grade for different sizes, so I’m a bit nervous about that. Especially since my sweater is of a slightly unusual construction, so the grading is going to be more tricky than normal. (Of course I jump right into a difficult sweater design! No starting off easy for me, oh no! ::snerk::) Not sure how long it will take me to write up the pattern, plus I’m going to have it tech edited and possibly even test knitted, so it’ll be a while before I’ll have anything to show you guys. On a related note – I have three coordinating designs sketched out, and the yarn is ordered for one of them, so I’m going forward with a pattern ‘collection’ for these! Not sure if I will wait until they are all done and release all 4 at once, or if I’ll release them as I finish them. We’ll see how it goes. 🙂
That’s all for this week! Maybe I’ll have more than one thing to show you next week!!
