Day 6: Is there a pattern or skill that you don’t yet feel ready to tackle but which you hope to tackle in the future, near or distant?
There’s not really a pattern that I’m dying to make, but don’t think I can. I feel like I’m at the point in my knitting where I can look at almost any pattern and think to myself, “yeah, I can make that.”. A skill I need to work on though is designing. So far, all of my designs have been pretty basic – cowls, scarves, hats and fingerless mitts, and it’s time to branch out.
I have a notebook full of sketches of sweaters, cardigans, and even a coat – it’s time to act on them. I’m about to start designing my first garment, and I will admit, I’m a little nervous. I know it’s mostly all about the math, which I totally love, but I’m still a bit intimidated. I have a feeling once I get going, it won’t be as difficult as I think, but it’s taking that first step that’s stressing me out. Just gotta keep telling myself I can do it, right? Because without confidence, we can’t do anything!
