It began in the middle of the night…one of those ideas that wake you up, and won’t let go until you get up and do something about it; and it happened night after night for months. I had been knitting the “Bog Shirt” by Meg Swansen, and I couldn’t stop thinking about how this construction could be adapted. Now you should know that I am not a morning person. Also, I am not a middle of the night person. Once I’m asleep, I do NOT like to be woken up (which sometimes makes me an unsympathetic, grumpy mommy – wish it was different, but I yam what I yam). Night after night the gears in my brain wouldn’t stop turning. The more I fought it, the louder and more insistent it became. I finally succumb to inspiration, and got my sleep back. These midnight urgings blossomed into lace cardigans, cropped denim-style jackets, baby cardigans, and tunics. So far, most are still in paperdoll form, but some are becoming patterns, and a backlog of them are getting ready to be test knit and edited. I will have pics up soon, so stay tuned.
