I’ve talked about my love of color here extensively but what I haven’t talked about is my fear of colorwork. Stranded, fair isle, intarsia…it’s all greek to me but as I see more and more colorful patterns I love I am realizing I need to get over my fears and get to learning!
On the left is a lovely knit suit from the Prada Fall 2017 Ready to Wear Collection. I saw another version of it in one of the September issues and it made me remember the Ravelry pattern on the right. The Shuffle Kimono and the Sunset Sails Jacket are both free patterns from Rowan that fill my color loving heart with joy and my knitting hands with fear. But this is my ultimate knit that will take some time to work up to but I’ve promised myself it will get knit.
Do any of you have knitting fears? Or projects you’re waiting until you’ve perfected a technique?
