As a fitting beginning to my summer of knitting design, today the second KnitPicks pattern collection that I have been a part of was released! It is called the CotLin 2014 Collection. My pattern is the Lacy Baseball Tee. It has lacy sleeves and a basic striped body with a keyhole detail in the back.
This is the first garment that I've designed, and I'm very happy with how it turned out! Even though it took a lot of work to sort out all of the details, I'm already thinking of other garment design ideas that I would like to try in the future. It is so fun to see something transform from a sketch in a notebook to a professionally photographed garment!
I've got a few more projects in the works for future KnitPicks collections that I will be working on in the next couple of months. I also have a couple of stuffed toy patterns that I plan to release independently soon. Not to mention several pattern ideas that have been on the back burner for a while. We'll see how many I have time to actually finish. Right now it feels like I have all the time in the world. Summer always goes by too quickly, though, so I'll enjoy it while I can.
