Sock stories, birds and bike superheroes…

Crafts, creativity, Knitting, My Sketch Book

I have been knitting a lot of socks lately. Really? I hear you say, we had not noticed…

I’m usually a one-project-at-a-time kind of knitter, and I always make a point of finishing something before starting something new. Not anymore. I have been happily suffering from experiencing some sort of compulsive creativity disorder for quite a while now. The realisation that I could turn absolutely everything around me into knitting fully set into me. And I have found myself experiencing with this idea a lot last week:

The one above is the first draft, in my attempt to create bird-inspired socks and mittens…

Then I tried to simplify the bird, in order to translate it into a pattern chart. I’m not there yet. I’m still learning to draw in squares. Everything I draw in charts looks like a character out of an old packman video game!
