All right, knitters! The votes have been tallied and it looks like socks are the big winner!
When I’m working on my own designs, the next thing I decide on is the inspiration behind my project. This isn’t anything technical; I’m not doing any math, or even picking out any stitch patterns yet. This step simply lets me figure out what the feel of the project will be. Once I decide on an inspiration, the rest of the design will start to fall into place.
So, here are a few options for the inspiration of our socks:
Option 1: Fun and silly, like this little goat.
Option 2: Sleek and sophisticated, like the Singapore skyline.Option 3: Delicate and feminine, like these forget-me-not flowers.Option 4: Warm and cozy, like this mountain cabin.Option 5: Light and breezy, like this tropical beach.Option 6: Natural and outdoorsy, like this mountain range.Option 7: Cool and practical, like the Pacific Northwest coastline.
