This was definitely a fun project. I didn’t like the 4th stitch pattern, but the design was very clever overall.
I have been digging up old projects and trying to finish one by one, while I started 2 new ones. Although I want to work on half-finished wool sweaters, it’s just simply too hot to touch wool these days. So, a simple crocheted throw is a perfect project to work on. Will post some photos soon… it’s very beautiful.
Also, I will be test-knitting another new design from Veera (you can see her blog from my fav blog list on the right – 100% Rain). So very excited.
One day, I would like to design my own garments. I have a few designs I would like to try. Right now I am very happy to learn different techniques and garment constructions by sophisticated designers out there. One day.
