Getting down with my Knit self
i've been thinking lately, i'm a little short when it comes to my knitting. i'm not a big producer, and haven't really been knitting for that long, so i can still be a little self conscious about my knit blogging. but it's occurred to me that i have some other experience that other knitters might not have, like the fact that i've been sewing since i was a kid (though seldom these days) and i even took a year of fashion design before i settled on a science degree. so there's a lot of stuff that goes through my head about the shape of a garment, or the texture of a fabric or yarn that i think has really been missing from my posts. but i've decided to make a bigger effort to add it from now on. i'm putting together a pattern for the Bubble Wrap. It's pretty simple, but i think an important aspect that i will include with the pattern is why i made the choices i did for this yarn. i think boucles are a lovely type of yarn, but they're not used very often, except for the typical hat or scarf projects that everyone turns to when they just don't know what to use the dang stuff for. and even i left a really gorgeous yarn to sit in the corner because i couldn't think of what would go well with that texture. nowadays, there are ever more types of yarn, and i think this issue must come up a lot for many knitters. i'm going to try n see what i can come up with, so stay tuned! just don't ask me what to do with ribbon yarn. i hate ribbon yarn! crazy twisting pile of...but that's another story :)
