There is such a thrill to start a new project. There are, of course steps in the process, but they all combine with the delight.
Yarn - check! I'm doing the bronze yarn I overdyed just the other day.
What does it want to become? A summer top for me.
Gauge Swatch - check!
Measure swatch - check!
Wash gauge swatch - check!
Measure swatch again - check!
Generate a pattern in SweaterWizard - check! I love this program, and Carole is so solidly behind her products!
Let the knitting begin! Suddenly the ball of yarn starts becoming! Fabric is forming under my fingers, and there is texture and fluidity where before there was string. It feels like magic!
