Something new off the needles is Dual. Dual is a 2 piece cowl that can be knit in different colours and then mixed & matched to suit your wardrobe. I’m calling for test knitters now & getting the pattern organised.
Lately I’ve been feeling a strong need to leave behind structured patterns and return to some freeform style knitting. I have visions of long jackets and cropped cardis in lots of different yarns and stitch patterns …. might have something to do with the current exercises I’m working on for the Handknit Design course or just a need for some knitting that’s not restrained by numbers and row counts.
One thing that is apparent in my knitting lately is wanting to use more colour … to use lots of colours in the one project. This started when I designed Arwen and I now have plans to combine more of the Biggan DK yarn colours in a Missoni inspired skirt.
