I don’t know how many of you know this, but on top of designing knitwear and selling the patterns, I also sell finished knitted items online, at shows and as custom orders. My WIP this week is one of those: a commissioned capelet. After talking with the customer, what she really wanted was a cropped jacket in the style of a capelet, but with distinct sleeves.
It’s just about done and I can’t be happier – not with the finished product per se but just with the fact that this will be done.
It was supposed to be a quick and simple project and although it was simple, it wasn’t quick. I tore out about half of the capelet and am re-knitting much of it because I wasn’t pleased with the result. Sigh. that’s what knitting does sometimes right?
