I'm working on lots of things at the minute and I haven't tended to swatch very often until now - preferring instead to test knit the item first and work the issues out afterwards when I can see the whole effect.
I scribble my ideas in a notebook or whatever comes to hand and work from there most of the time. Designing knits fills a lot of my mind and you can imagine the notebooks and scraps fill up pretty quickly - I've learned some lessons along the way, stapling the ball band to my notes for a start. I keep coming across ideas from a while ago and have no idea what yarn I used or what yardage it was, that's fairly useless when it comes to sharing with people, ah well we live and learn!
What's involved in your creative process?
