It appears that patterns have a life of their own in my head. I start with a general idea of what I want to do, get a semblance of a pattern together, and start knitting. And sometimes, the pattern just develops a life of its own, and I knit as if on auto-pilot, the stitches tumbling off my needles, as if in a desperate hurry to be born into a project. It’s an effort to keep up with the notes when this happens.
I’ve been treasuring this special colourway from Knitsch (it’s called Green Thumb?) for a wee while, awaiting the perfect project, and now I have it.
I really ought to be finalising the patterns for the last two socks I have just completed the designs for, but this sock baby is in a hurry to come into the world too.
It’s going to be a rockin’ Socktober! It feels wonderful to be creating again!
