A Fresh Start


Every year I am wondering if I should make some new resolutions for the coming year. If I do, I’m usually far too optimistic. So this year, I’m not making resolutions, but I wrote down a few plans and ideas. No goals!! Just something to look at when I’m not having any inspiration.

One of the first ideas I wrote down, is to make new patterns. I really love to do that; the idea in my head, trying to figure out how to make something out of yarn or fabric, the errors which have to be taken care of, the surprises which happen when trying out something, trying to put the whole idea/pattern into something comprehensible, the testing.

So that is what I’m doing this week. Again I had an idea with flowers and variegated yarn.

First I had to make a chart for the flowers.

Not the best possible picture, but I guess you get the idea.

I’m using the variegated yarn as the main colour, and an off-white solid as contrasting colour.


So far it is working out perfectly.
To be continued!

Groetjes, Dorien

Hi Dorien! That looks beautiful! I love your designs! For me it's also better not to set any goals just to think perhaps what I would like to do and I am trying to be more creative this year!
Happy and Creative New Year! x Teje
