I started this post before lunch on Thursday. Souricette 2 was home sick. I‘m under the weather too. Exactly when I have tons of work to do for my design for the last week of PRP. My signature style. I was frustrated because all I had after two days were two swatches. One for an idea that I scrapped for now and one that was supposed to be perfect. After all it had worked in another yarn and I thought it would look the same with this yarn. Not so much.
I was tired and discouraged. I told myself I should nap. But my thoughts were racing and congestion was messing with my breathing. So I got up and tried another technique. Cables. I used them for the icicle skirt and I wanted to use another technique for this project. I tried them anyway. And there.
It worked. Oh sure, it needs work. It’s not exactly the right shape but it’s the right technique. The bonus is that I know exactly what to do for the second texture I want on the sweater. Still lots of swatching to do but it clicked. It’ll be cables again. So be it. If I use them so often, they must be part of my signature style anyway, right?
