This is one of those designs that I feel just sort of popped into existence out of no-where.
Of course it didn't—one of my knitters, Jessica, spent hours lovingly creating the sweater for me. But for me, it happened during a time when I was fully engrossed in all sorts of other things, that I hardly noticed it as it passed between Jessica and the publisher.
It's so nice when that happens—especially with such a beautiful sweater. I look at it, and think… "where did that come from?"
song by Medicine for the People, in which he chants "Through us, not by us" over and over. In that song, he's speaking more politically, but it's true about everything we "do". These sweaters that are designed—they come through me, they're not designed BY me. It's nice for me to keep that in mind… keeps me humble.
I haven't received a copy of the magazine yet, but once I do, I'll be sure to get the nitty-gritty info up onto my site—finished measurements, yarn requirements, etc…
