“Knitting is the perfect metaphor for life. You might spend months knitting something, but you could probably unravel the whole thing in less than an hour.”
-Gabbo De La Parra
This is an ongoing collection of detailed pattern notes and progress pictures of pattern I have knit and loved. Like a project page, but so much more!
This yarn appreciation post is brought to you by the Pattern Notes post I wrote for my Super Simple Summer Sweater!
After I wrote about how much I loved knitting with it, I dug through my stash to see how much I had left over. Not nearly enough to make something with, but it did inspire me to look through all the colours on LoveCrafts and of course I fell in love with it all over again.
The Super Simple Summer Sweater by Joji Locatelli was the very first sweater I ever completed – after 16 years of sock knitting! I had a lot of varied knitting experience up to that point but almost all of it was learned in relation to socks (cables, lace, colourwork), and I had zero experience in shoulder shaping and that sort of thing.
