Despite having six hours of airplane knitting time, I spent most of that time catatonic (love those early morning flights) watching the TV on the flying Greyhound that is J*tBl*e. They DO have channels I don’t have at home so it wasn’t all bad, and watched Project Runway, Season 2 all the way to the right coast. Fun stuff (I love Tim Gunn). I think the real world business of designing clothes will come as a bit of a shock to those designers since you actually want to make clothes people would buy, but it makes for good TV. I could just imagine the look on my boss’s face if I told her I was going to DRAPE a new design idea. I don’t think the sample maker or pattern grader would enjoy my marked up muslin. I would probably learn a few colorful words of Spanish though…oh I digress.
What I did work on for a bit, were some long neglected socks being knit up from Spirit Trail Fiberworks sock yarn. Lovely stuff. I’m using a simple crossed stitch rib pattern from one of the Barbara Walker Treasuries. The repeats are different lengths because I lose count and just eyeball it. Built in quirkiness ya know.
