Part II – The redesign

So this weekend has seen a huge change in the sweater  and design etc..

What happened this weekend?

  • researched in my knitting books and found some great designs to use as inspiration
  • decided I needed to add colors – so added a pale blue, gold, and white to the original red and denim blue and reworked the backgrounds of the motifs
  • of course, now I need to go and buy the yarns – but I checked the colors of the yarn I am using and used only those in the same wool.
  • spent many more hours fine tuning the colors and patterns and arrangement and…..
  • borrowed one of my nephew’s sweater that fits a bit loosely to get good measurements
  • measured the sweater
  • readjusted the chart and patterns to fit the new measurements.
  • continued to “design” the colors, now I have FOUR versions of the sweater to choose to knit.  (YIKES)

Things to do:

  • Monday get yarn in the colors I need
  • FINAL check on size and chart and patterns
  • Print chart in color
  • CAST ON

oh BTW I want to finish this by Saturday.    (send prayers …)

Here’s two of the patterns:

It was great to peruse the McGregor and Starmore books – amazing tomes of inspiration and instruction!
