Kiwiyarns Knits

A blog about New Zealand yarns, knitting and life

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!
