Pam asked in the comments to yesterday’s post:
Title aside, do you chart the lace patterns before you start knitting?
Yes, I do. So calling it “uncharted territory” really isn’t completely accurate, now is it?
There has been a lot of charting and recharting and swapping of patterns and last minute switching with this design, however.
When I started a circular shawl in my Tilli Tomas Elsie yarn that I abandoned, it consisted of completely different stitch patterns. After I decided that I did not want to use that yarn, I completely revamped the charts. And I’ve tweaked them a couple of times while knitting. And just before I started the chart for the section I’m on now, I completely re-did it. And then again as I started knitting, I adjusted it on the fly.
Sort of makes my head spin.
I only did a couple of rounds last night because I had some non-knitting-related work that I needed to do.
But, I have finished the sock design for the Dye Dreams sock club offering for Autumn. You have to click on the link to see the sock.
I’m very happy with it!
