Wishful Thinking

The latest issue of design365 is now availale! Click the link in the archives on the left.

I find my mind going back to doing stripes but this time I want to do stripes and entrelac together. I have no idea how that is going to work but anything is worth a try  – at least in knitting – after all, it’s only yarn and you’re allowed some do overs if it doesn’t work. Besides, I feel the need to do something bolder and bigger to get some different looks in the shops.

Some of the items that are now in the shop or almost ready to get there have a stripe running through them but these are caused by the yarn and not by the design but it still counts.
