square by square
I've had this crazy mad urge to knit my way through all the patterns in this knitting book and then sew them together at the end. Square by square.
I saw that book in three different bookshops on three different days and resisted. Do I really need another craft book or another craft project? But in the end the urge was too strong and last week, on the day my own book was released, I gave in and bought it for myself as a reward.
I'm glad I did.
I have such good intentions.
Each square is made up of different variations of knit and purl. Yet each square is so different. The textures, the shapes, the patterns...
It's a lesson in knitting.
A scrap busting mission.
A winter warmer.
A way to busy my hands while the butterflies dance in my stomach as I prepare for another interview, another photo shoot, another bit of book publicity.
Square by square.
By square by square.
In the meantime I'll be knitting a row whenever I get a chance.
If you like, you could listen to a podcast I recorded with Rob from Dymocks here.
I wonder how long it takes for people to get used to the sound of their own voices. I'm so not there yet. I cringe every time I hear myself played back.
I hope you are having such a great weekend you guys.
Do you like the sound of your own voice on play back?
Do you fancy a bit of a knit-a-long?
