Over the weekend I went to this party and was talking to this woman who plans on opening a children's clothing store. She's a mutual acquaintance of several friends and she knows I knit. She asked me if I wanted ot make things for her store! I said I'd love to! It should be opening in August. So, last night I headed to the LYS to buy some Rowan Handknit DK to experiment and design a line of hats. I spent most of the night knitting a hat in the round with a motif in the center. However, I couldn't get the color changes/twisting the two colors of yarn to work out right. I finally realized that it wasn't working because I was knitting in the round and not turning my fabric. Duh! I started over again (for the fifth time) on straights. I also want to design a line of sweaters to mix and match with the hats.
