October already

I can’t believe that we are already 5 days into October. The last few days have been getting really cold in the evening and I’m feeling the strong need for some more warm weather clothing. My Cabled Hoodie is still moving along slowly in the background but even though I really love the pattern I find myself working much more slowly on other pieces patterns. I think when you are writing the pattern yourself you knit at super speed as you are waiting to discover what it it going to look like. You have the idea in your head – you may even have made up a swatch and written some of the pattern but until you get the yarn and needles out you just really don’t know what it is going to look like.
I think that when you start flying though the knitting you can think more creatively along the way – all sorts of different ways of solving the design problems start appearing. Can you tell I love designing!!
