So Many Ideas

A lack of knitting over the summer combined with finally feeling a rhythm to my new life has led to a flurry of knitting and designing that I can’t seem to control.  The people I interact with on a daily basis have been a well of inspiration for the things that can be born on my needles, and when I’m not sketching out designs, I’m working them up.  I’m afraid to stop knitting because I don’t want the designs to float away.  They have to be made NOW.  So, when I’m not in the air, at the coffee shop, or at the computer working, I”m knit-purling away at a new design.

I’ve been inspired by necessity.  The trapeze boots that I made (and currently in their test-knit phase), were created out of a need to have my shins and ankles covered for my ankle hangs on the trapeze.  Other sketches include shorts, rib warmers, legwarmers, cowls, sweaters, and costume accessories.  My only problem is that I can’t knit it all at once.  I have dozens of sketches, but not enough hands.  Also, the stash busting of the past two years means I am starting to scrape the bottom of my stash.  I don’t have enough of what i need for some of my designs.  I’m still trying to knit through what I have, so I’m sticking to the designs that can utilize what’s available, while devising plans for the other things.

More designs are coming!  My main goal at the moment is to compile enough to put out a short e-book, so you may not see finished items until that point.  I’ll give you teasers when I can!
