Blog Hop on Creativity

An invite  from a fellow Raveler, Bowie asking if I would like to participate in a creative blog hop!  Sure would!  I love questions such as these as they force thinking of the why and wherefore of things, and I know that reflection on any level is the best way to learn, for everyone.  Also, this reminds me of those chain letters from days gone by.  Anyone else remember those?

Drapey (Part 2 of 2)

What is it about Tom Scott that captures my attention?  Whoever would think to take the traditional cardigan, flip it around, and call it fashionable?  Tom Scott!  AND, whoever would think to design a garment that is knitted from the bottom to the top, but is supposed to be worn sideways?  You would think that designing a sweater would be challenging enough, but Tom Scott clearly takes it to the next level.  Here, you can see what I mean.

Long awaited ‘Drapey’ (Part 1 of 2)

Finally and finished!  This has been on my mind since turning the page of that exquisite Vogue Knitting Magazine Issue, way back in the Spring of 2013.  Smitten with this Tom Scott beauty and Tom Scott’s designs, in general, I ordered the yarn immediately thinking that the yarn and my working it up was just around the corner.  Well, you’ve already heard the saga of the yarn purchase and it is now a year and a half later and I’m just now posting the finished garment.  As they say, better late than never.

Here’s the thing.  Time is sacred.  Yarn is expensive.  I need to get the biggest bang for my buck.  There is an ever increasing list of criteria my pattern choice has to have.  I have talked about them before.  High on the list is its uniqueness, followed by excitement and originality, followed by wearability on my body shape, followed by eye catching, and the list goes on.  Lately, I am noticing an ever increased thought process on the pattern’s versatility.  So, I now adding that to the list.  In being  versatile I am suggesting in ways that the sweaters can be worn with multiple tops and bottoms that already exist in my wardrobe (I do not want a new knitting project to send me off shopping) AND versatile in that they transcend into the different seasons.   Never have I thought about the seasonal criteria more than now as weather patterns are changing and seem to be getting more intense.  I live in a region that experiences (and enjoys) four seasons with a history of those seasons in a fairly predictable cycle.  Lately, however one needs to be prepared for the change of seasons…. and on an ever increasing level…within ONE day!  Now, I hate to go on about the weather, but I am noticing that this single criteria is almost topping my list of pattern choice!
