I'm about to find out. Ever since Heather had the Design Series on her wesbite I just feel the need to do more. I want to do more. So I got an idea, grabbed my graph paper and went to town. I had no idea of the mathematics of a shawl, but it wasn't very hard to figure out once I got going.
The problem is getting the numbers to match up for what I wanted. In the end I succeeded.
Or so I am hoping I have.
The shawl I am currently working on starts with a border, then stitches are picked up along the edge and then the body is knit from there. So instead of it getting bigger, it gets smaller and I really like the idea of that. So thats where I am going with mine. I will only be using that idea of my shawl from Kirsten, but I suppose I have to check and make sure that's ok before I actually make it. The shawl itself is of my own design entirely. I just started sketching what I wanted. So the construction itself is the only part I have to check on. Hoping it won't be a problem.
First I am going to finish up the one I have going by Kirsten Kapur, then I am going to knit my very own and see how it looks. I can only imagine that the first try will be a disaster, but how else will I learn?
I'm so excited about this and if it weren't for Heather I would not be this into it! She made it exciting for me and I hope you pop over to her Website and see what she has going on next.
