first design in the works!

I've been working diligently on a few shawl design ideas in the last few weeks or so. Charting mostly, but also swatching to see how things will play out in a knitted fabric. So far, one idea I've got doesn't seem to want to cooperate at all, so I've put it in time out for now... but after charting and charting, and swatching and charting some more trying to figure it out, I think I've finally got a workable idea! Not the original idea unfortunately, but for another, more simple shawl. I hope to be casting on for the prototype sometime this week and I am so excited to see how it all works out! I'm hoping well. Please send some good vibes my way! :)


  1. Hey you didn't tell anyone you started a blog, good thing I'm nosy and read your Rav page and caught this! Sending you all the good vibes I can think of!

  2. Good luck, Vanessa! I can't wait to see your first pattern finished. I'm sure it will be lovely. :)


  3. This will be fun to follow along! I'm not normally a blog reader but I'll make you my first! Marty

  4. Thanks for your comments and good vibes ladies! They helped a ton!

    Marty - I was never much of a blogger or blog reader either, but I figured it's a good time to start! I hope you find some entertainment in my blog and that I'm not *too* boring, lol! :D
