Secret Knitting Wall

Being a designer is fun. You get to play with a bunch of different yarns and create something that is (hopefully) new and exciting to other knitters. As I knit along on my projects, my sketches come to life and become something wearable. But what is even more fascinating is watching others follow my sweater map and create something of their own.

One Planet has created a KAL especially for projects that originate from their site. Not only for patterns, but for yarns too. It's a place where I can help anyone working on my patterns, watch the progress and see the finished results. It's just beginning, but one knitter is already working on my Sunshine Tank and I'm so excited!

Being a designer has it's downfalls too, like deadline knitting that keeps the personal projects away. One Planet just released 2 more patterns recently and I am dying to make Analise. I have my Camouflage Lanas all ready, but sadly no time to start. Off to the Ravelry queue you go Analise!

Wow, you want to make a dress?! How brave of you! It must be so exciting to keep track of people making your designs :)

That dress caught my eye too, Melissa! But I don't think I'll ever make it. I don't like wearing knitted skirts/dresses. But I can admire other people's :)

You hit the nail on the head with that one. I've found adding to ravelry que and buying yarn helps. :)

analise is gorgeous, and you can certainly pull it off.
