My second class at VKLive was Designing Your Own Stitch Patterns with Cookie A. I knit her Monkey Socks. I own both her books, Knit. Sock. Love. and Sock Innovation. I think she’s really talented and love her designs.
This was really outside my comfort zone and I wasn’t sure if I could just make stitches anywhere and see what happens. The class exercise was to cast on and add different increases, decreases and/or cables where ever the spirit moved you.
Cookie was inspiring and very encouraging. I figured it was appropriate to wear the sweater I designed for Vogue Knitting Magazine to VKLive.
This is my swatch in progress. I’m actually quite pleased with myself. I knit outside the box! I definitely want to go back to this swatch and see where it takes me.
