Today has been a cool, wet day. A rainy day. My daughters and I decided to go for a walk on some trails near our house. I love to bring my camera along when we explore through these trails. It often yields some lovely shots and today didn’t disappoint me. This is a cute little library box. I’ve seen these around and I think it’s a great idea. The girls felt nervous about looking at the books, like someone was going to come out and tell us to go away.
This past week I’ve been reading the pattern creation book I got for my birthday and making revisions to my patterns. It’s taking a lot of time to revise the patterns because I want to make sure I’m providing detailed instructions that are easy to read and understand. I also want to get people a little story or insight about each pattern. It’s so freeing and enjoyable working on the two patterns I’m presently sorting out.
I will admit there has been some frustration with the Honey Bee pattern. The main issue has been to make neat, clear holes for the wings. I finally have figured it out and started the actual item it’ll become (that’s a secret, but you’ll know soon enough). I will have to make it twice, once to work the bugs out of the pattern and a second time to double check that pattern works and makes sense. If I have time I’ll ask a fellow knitter to test the pattern.
Stay dry and happy knitting!
