Red Herring Knits is the culmination of the idea that when a knitter creates a sweater or other knit design, the tangible process involving yarn and needles is a diversion from what is actually happening.

Every design begins with a concept–an idea of how it should look, fit feel. What thoughts and emotions it should evoke.

This leads to a technical evaluation. How do the sleeves fit into the armholes? What size gauge is required? Where does the shaping happen? What stitch patterns are used?

The final stage is execution, the actual knitting, hopefully culminating in a finished object.

Knitters find the above process so familiar as to be unnoticeable, and most knitters have probably dabbled with design in one form or another.

But I like to take knitting one step further.
