I spent some time during the cooler weather today swatching more cashmere in a different stitch pattern, giving full rein to imagining the possibilities, as a way to help divert some of my nervous energy and to rest my still unhappy back. Iíve learned to see the flow and shape of garment possibilities after knitting a small swatch to see the difference between the yarn itself and the fabric it creates once knitted. That using a different stitch pattern can change the drape and flow of the fabric significantly is an addition level of complexity Iím still working to master.
