Every once in a while I run across a pattern I just can't wait to make. Usually, as a designer, I don't have much time to make things just for the fun of making them. Deadlines are looming and all that. I do think it's important to work on something other than my own designs from time to time, though. I think it helps me to grow as a designer and a knitter/crocheter. I can learn new techniques and shaping that I might not even consider on my own. It really does help expand my own knowledge and skills - something that is never a waste of time! Lois S. Young's Scandinavian Stripes sure fits that bill for me! It may take me a year to complete - I think it will be time well spent! I love color work in both knitting and crochet and find that the more I do it the easier it is becoming. What new project are you going to jump in and try? I'd love to hear about it!
