Finally finished this snowflake scarf I've been working on forever it seems! This time I used a darker chiffon background to show off the flakes more. I'll be putting it in my PurplePlatypus shop later today so if you're interested go and have a look. I'm working on a new design for spring, so no snowflakes but something different. As long as I can get it to turn out the way I have it in my head, which can be a challenge sometimes. I know exactly how I want it to look but getting to that look is not easy sometimes. I like to do things different then what the book tells me ... I start out following instructions or patterns and then my mind just totally refuses to follow what it says and off I go ... doing my own thing. Bad part is that if it's something I need to duplicate (like knitting another sleeve ...) "Houston, we have a problem!" since I have a dislike on writing down how I've changed the pattern and made up my own! Maybe someday they will come up with an electronic devise that can keep track of that and make my life a heck of a lot easier!
