I’m reeeeally close to releasing my latest design, which I’m so pleased with. It was a joy to knit (using amazing BFL/Masham yarn from the Knitting Goddess), and is delicious to wear. It’s also a bit quirky, and finding the clearest way to write the pattern has been an adventure. It’s not at all hard to knit – in fact, one of the best things about it is that once you’re properly set up, you barely need to check the pattern – but getting properly set up is the thing! My lovely tech editor and testers have been proving that they’re worth their weight in gold, letting me know where and how to add more clarity. The result, though, is a pattern that specifically invites you to adjust it to your exact body, no maths required, and I think that’s a really big win.
All will be revealed in my next letter – till then, happy making!
