It is necessary to knit.

February 8, 2010

My knitting obsession fervour has lately morphed into a desire to design things. I still like to knit other people’s fantastic patterns. And I still waste hours trying to work out a pattern I’ve seen — not because I’m cheap and don’t want to pay for it, I’ll have you know, but for the challenge of working it out.

The latest challenge is to start from nothing. Nothing?! I’m lying. Nothing comes out of nothing. There’s always something. Such as a fantastic YARN in a fantastic colourway, that lands next to another colourway — and ZOIIIIING!

A glove. Callisto.

And a mitten. And a mitt. And so on.


My obsession can perhaps now be called a worthy (pre)occupation.

    Not at all.
    I love the top photograph, it looks like someone reaching out in a new direction with clear, blue sky ahead.
