There are so many amazing knitting patterns out in the world that it’s almost cruel. I love so many, yet I know I will never get to them all in my lifetime, try as I might. Between Ravelry and Pinterest alone, the inspiration is simply out of control. Why on earth are we still coming up with new knitting designs! There are already so many. Enough to occupy even the most obsessed knitter for a lifetime! Nonetheless, the creative drive to make a new must endure.
Carry on, designers. Carry on.
I don’t spend a ton of time on Pinterest. In general, I try to unplug as much as I possibly can. Sometimes when I can’t sleep at night, I will scroll through Pinterest and pin patterns and knit inspirations that catch my eye. I call this my Pinterest Insomnia Inspiration. I pin some knits because I know I want to cast on and make my own (next year!). Others I know I will never knit (hello complicated colorwork!), but they are simply so stunning that I must share them on my Pinterest boards.
I always love sweaters and tees, particularly patterns with unique and striking design elements.
I have had hats on my brain lately. These two in particular caught my eye. It’s not as easy as one might think to find a new, creative way to design a hat. And am I the only knitting mother feeling guilty because I have never knit my child a toy? Hello, holiday season/December birthday!
Socks! Now that I knit one pair, I suddenly have an entirely separate Pinterest board. Just for socks. I am sunk!
Do you use Pinterest? If so, please find me so we can be Pinterest friends. I guess that’s a thing now.
