The same goes for the book I have been working on for the past few months. I did not realize how time consuming this project will be. I have no regrets and am happy with the progress, though my patience is tested a lot.
Had I chosen a more simple project, like a work of fiction, I might have spend less time on it, but in the end the 80 pages that we have to turn in by the end of the semester would be just 80 pages of material that I would just put on a pile of old homework assignments and that would be the end of it. This book, I hope, will be different. When I am finish with it I will have about thirty new knitting patterns that will find an audience one way or another.
Some of the patterns are projects that I had worked on in the past, but did not finish the whole process, and some of the patterns are completely new, never seen before.Though in the knitting world it is hard to say that something has not been around before. I hope that my patterns will offer a fresh look at the world around us, and that they will make you want to pick up knitting needles and start to create your own version of one of my knitting patterns from the collection in the book project.
This particular unfinished project, the knitting pattern for tulip hat, did not make it into the book after all. Though I was thinking about including it in one of the parts of the book. Yet the tulip is in a way an important part, because it was the picture of the yellow tulip I took last spring that started it all.
Thank you for visiting.
