Just like these photos the whimsy collection has been emerging in bits and pieces, and that’s how I’ve seen it myself for most of the last few months, but now it’s finally coming together into a whole. I’ve been working on the layout this week and it’s really starting to look like a real book.
Unfortunately I had to finally admit that one design just wasn’t working out and that it was dragging the whole project back. So this will no longer be part of the collection. Although I like the concept, there are all sorts of things wrong with the execution and I don’t want to publish something I’m not completely happy with. There will be a replacement though and I think you might like it.
As this project is coming to an end I’ve also been thinking about new ideas, I’m looking forward to starting those and building them up – tiny stitch by tiny stitch.
Here in the studio, we are definitely feeling like it is sweater time. Some of us are still finishing up accessories from our holiday knitting, but we are excited about making sweaters and the workplace chat is full of links to Ravelry and other pattern sources with riffs on what yarn we could use and how we could adapt them.
