My current dilemma is that I am not using any written pattern and have to size and try everything before going on to the next step.
These decisions were paramount to a successful Jacket design:
- - for the first piece, the right front section, deciding the cable design and the length of the Jacket
- - for the left front deciding that the pattern should be knitted opposite ( the cables are starting in the opposite direction )
- - for the back deciding the new middle cable design. I have trial knitted swatches to see what will work in concert with the front. I was only sure that I wanted to come up with a bigger diamond design that what is framing the front panels.
- - for the sleeve there were many little decisions and it took a few days to decide:
- how wide at the start
- how wide at the end
- how long of a sleeve
- what pattern, if any
I don't have a mannequin!
The sleeve has been done since Saturday and I am avoiding the sewing chore, I wonder why? I feel like I am stuck like a writer with writer's block.
But today, first things first. It is election day in America, after all.
Today really means so much to me, a proud first time Presidential Election voter.
I can not believe it took me 60 Years to arrive at this point in my live, better late than never.
