Sitting and knitting is actually very relaxing and almost like meditation...
My mind spins all over the place and I get all sorts of new ideas.
Only problem is that my hands don't knit as fast as new plans form in my mind...
Anyway, spurred on by the completion of the knitted cushion cover I thought of another complementary pattern, but decided to 'try' it out on the computer (Excel) to see if it would work. As you see, I have again borrowed inspiration from the Marius sweater but also various other pictures I have seen on the internet. I guess you can say I am showing my roots in the image above - yes I spent most of my childhood in the south eastern part of Norway where there are plenty of moose.
This cushion cover will be slightly larger with 89 stiches as opposed to 72 on the previous one, but I think that will be ok.
Do any of you have any experience with making your own patterns?
I'd better get knitting as I am impatient to see if this works!
