I think I know what these few rows will be, I'm a little concerned that the variegated yarn is too pale to stand out against the grey but may well give this a test knit as is.

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?


  1. Wow, this looks amazing. I wish I could knit. I'm only ok at the very basics!

    1. Thank you very much! I hope to release the swatch as a full pattern as soon as I can figure out what I want to do with it - I'd be happy to help you through the stitches if you wanted to give it a try (if you want the finished item of course)
