When I finish a knitting project, or even just finish a skein of yarn, I’m often met with a slight dilemma: what to do with my yarn labels. For the longest time, I’d just shove them into the middled of a densely-packed gallon zipper bag, end of story. Then I started designing.
Like many pattern designers, my design process begins with knitting (or crocheting) swatches. Since I’m designing this in conjunction with a publisher, my editor and I have been emailing back and forth to decide which motifs are working for us both. A big help in the design process has been my new HP Sprout.
