I’m one of those knitters who can’t just knit a pattern as written. I’m always combining little bits of one pattern with another or changing things up as I knit. How would it look with beads? A little longer? With a ruffle? Striped? Every now and then I just start something from scratch, and more rarely, I write enough notes on what I did that it turns into a pattern. My favorite objects to create are toys for my kids and wee tiny socks, a small canvas with so much room for creativity.
