Feelings are like a color chart
that God has given us.
Eight knitters started knitting their argyle vests in the first class. In addition to using printed instructions to get them started on the ribbing and vest back, they also filled in work sheets that helped them figure their stitch and row count based upon their gauge and measurements.
In the intervening two weeks, each sent me their calculations and I updated their customized color charts to use when they knit the argyle vest front (photo above).
As I polish the instructions for knitting the front and adding the finishing touches, I am faced with my usual quandary when writing patterns. How much do I include in the instructions? Do I illustrate how to add duplicate stitch accents, work attached iCord around the arm holes, and finish the v-neck with a miter and invisible bind off? Or do I just say do it and assume knitters will look it up if they don’t know how? In a perfect world, I’d publish this using little videos in an enhanced eBook. Wouldn’t that be fun?
Hi Katherine! Wonderful colors! I would love to see your work on videos in eBook. Have a great day and thanks for stopping by my wordpress site.

These are beautiful patterns. It amazes me that you can do all these patterns and more with two needles and the right color yarns. You are a combination of an artist and engineer it seems to me. Thank you for your posts.
Thanks. We are having such fun in the argyle class. Everyone chose a different color combination and they are all pretty. We meet again this Saturday and I can’t wait to see how they have progressed.
I hope this finds you well and writing.
