Blue has grown on me lately. I always tend to find it difficult to pair as wearing two blues together (jeans anyone?) can go wrong so quickly. But I think I’m getting to some point where I really like pastel blues, turquoises, or even blue mints. And it does pair beautifully with one of my favourite colours, coral!
I’m definitively enjoying myself knitting this new brioche shawl. I’m still amazed on how I like to knit brioche after all. I used to find it fiddly and time-consuming for a not-so-great graphic effect. Well, I changed my mind, big time! After all, brioche knitting is a bit like drawing with slip stitches 😉
The first two sections of the shawl are done. And match my maths, hurray! Now, let’s write the first draft of the pattern before anything else. It might look like the tedious part of being a knitting designer, but for me, that’s where all the magic happens. I try to write all of my patterns as simply as possible, to enable you to tackle new techniques whenever you want and with only the pattern at hands. If the pattern is clear enough, all you have to do is to follow it by-the-letter and you’ll be able to create your own squishy shawl.
Knitting shouldn’t be scary. Brioche knitting shouldn’t either.
