hand knit scarf in black/white baby alpaca
Knit Baby, Knit!
Let me begin this post by saying that I am not a knitter. I'm a designer, a seamstress, a tailor, a draper and even a pattern maker, but knitting is out of my comfort zone. I like to work with fabric -- it's dimensional, tangible. Knitting is kind of like creating fabric. Actually, it's a lot like that, considering that yarn/fibers are woven together to produce material. So, I'm not sure exactly what or who inspired me (maybe the amazing Kristin from K-Line), but I was determined to make a scarf to include in my Fall 2012 presentation. I'm sharing a glimpse of the partially finished piece, but you'll have to stay tuned to see the final product!
