I've been having a jolly time over the past few days, knitting up samples to accompany my submissions to Vogue Knitting.
Sorry, I have to take a few deep breaths every time I say that. If I get them accepted, I'll need resuscitation.....
Anyway, this has involved making little samples of the interesting bits of my designs. It's heaven. No great long cast-ons, no acres of body, just the bits of cables and Fair Isle that make the designs interesting.
I've done two out of three, and now I'm champing at the bit waiting for my last ball of yarn to arrive so that I can do the final one. It's just what I need to fight the winter blahs - producing little sections of fun.
Here's hoping the final garments are as interesting to knit :)
