Good Morning Guys,
Well I've decided to take the plunge. Seems like as good of time as any to cross the item off my bucket list. I've always wanted to knit a sweater of my own design so I've changed my recent plans. Instead of knitting my next project based on the design of someone else I've chosen to create an original. This morning I cast on 101 stitches of Cascade Yarns 9489 Heather (a lovely blood red) and pulled out some reference books.
1."The Knitter's Guide to Sweater Design" by Carmen Michelson & Mary-Ann Davis
2. 'The Complete Book of Knitting" by Barbara Abbey
3. "The Encyclopedia of Knitting & Crochet Stitch Patterns" by Linda Mariano
4. " 50 Fabulous Knit Aran Stitches" by Rita Weiss
With names like Cathedral Cables, Bobbles and Diamonds, Blarney Kisses, Lobster Claws etc. how can you not get excited and inspired. Let's see where it leads.
Happy knitting all and I hope you're having a wonderful holiday weekend.
