Back in November I got this fortune when I was having lunch with my daughters at Panda Express. I didn't realize how appropriate it really would be until now.
I have been thinking about trying my hand at some designing for some time now, really for about 9-10 months. While searching for a cowl pattern to knit for my girls for Christmas, I became a little frustrated with what I was finding. I knew what I wanted it to look like and I was pretty sure I knew how to construct it. I kept looking and looking but couldn't find what I wanted. Then *insert head slap here* I thought, "Why don't I just design it myself?" And Patricia (Ravelry link) was born.
This is the first of what I hope will be a collection of patterns inspired by members of my family. I'm pretty excited about it and have a bunch of ideas running around in my head. I've started writing these ideas down in a notebook and the notebook is almost full! I can't wait to share more patterns and ideas as they come!
I hope you enjoy knitting Patricia as much as enjoyed designing it!
