Sometimes, after working on a new pattern/project for 2 days, you are left with a pile of unraveled yarn, and a CIRCLE.
Granted, I’ve had other things going on, too, like still trying to get the Yummy You store to work (my buddy Kei has some choice words regarding the Magento platform, but those are not G-rated), and working on getting Yummy You in other stores, but seriously, I did not expect to have a CIRCLE after all this work.
I don’t know how other crochet designers do it, but sometimes, I have to take something apart a million times. Some times I try something one day for a few hours, decide it’s not the best, unravel it, start over again. I think I have done that at least ten times with this project. The end result will seem very stream-lined and simple, but you’ll never know how many hours went into deciding on that one specific pattern. Like, I tried using front post stitches for some texture, and it was looking awesome, but later I decided they created too much bulk for this project, so I unraveled that and ixnayed the FPs. My new website is www.UnRavelry.com, and all we do is post pictures of yarn piles and odd shapes with smiley faces on them!
Wish I could tell you more, but this project will be part of something launching in January! As long as I actually finish it in time for my deadline! HAH!
