From couch to runway… Well, let’s just say I have always been a private knitter. For years I’ve knitted right here in my house, wherever it might be, in the location that was designated by the family as Holly’s knitting spot, and pretty much under the same lamp that has traveled with us from one location to another. The lamp itself blinks due to age or an ill kept electrical connection and we need to turn over the cushion of the seat often to prevent the sag that ultimately is formed. I do not belong to a knitting group (currently, but that could change) as I’m too tired after life’s responsibilities to find and get to one and I do not take my knitting with me when I travel or to work. Teaching does not allow time for knitting (what the heck job does?) and I like travel time to be reflective in nature. These are the habits that I’ve developed and we all know that people are creatures of their own habits.
I love texture. I love dolman sleeves. I love oversized tops and I love hoods. What can I say? I love this project! However, I wasn’t thrilled when Vogue Knitting, 360 suggested muppet-like. (Keep in mind, it was knitted in purple.) No, I do not want to look like a muppet nor did I “see” muppet when I fell in love with it.
