“In every job that must be done, there is an element of fun, you find the fun, and snap, the job’s a game.” -Marry Poppins (film) “A Spoon Full of Sugar”
Naming patterns is, by far, the most challenging part of writing patterns for me.
It’s always the last piece I get to, and I’ll often use some sort of characteristic of the shawl as a sort of working title, or short hand, while I’m knitting.
So, I’ve been trying to publish a pattern for every letter of the alphabet.
C: Climbing Trellis. (the first pattern I ever published)
F: nothing yet!
T: Tumbling Deco.
Z: Zodiac le Plume.
9 more letters to go! After I finish the alphabet I’ll need to find a new challenge to help me name my patterns.
I know it’s a little thing, and ultimately having a pattern named after every letter of the alphabet doesn’t mean anything, but sometimes having a challenge that’s a little bit silly is a great motivator.
