WELCOME!

This is my very first Knit A Long ever, so please bear with me. I want to host a KAL for knitters who design. I usually get left out of KALs because I make up my own designs a lot of the time. So, if you like to knit from your own head/heart but would like the community and support that comes with a KAL, well than you will find it here.
To join please leave a comment on this post with your e-mail address and blog address and I will add you as a contributor as soon as I can!

I hope you'll keep this KAL going. I have a number of projects started and planned that are from published patterns, but I want to make a sweater later in the year from my own design, and I've just started to think about it. I'll probably be ready to swatch it later in the spring. This is a wonderful idea for a KAL.

I'm not sure I qualify, but I want to go further in learning to design. I often take a basic pattern and use different stiches, necklines, sleeves and fittings, or most commonly convert ideas using different guages. Not quite original, but heading that way. Is that ok?

I'd like to join, if it's not too late. I just recently got really into knitting and crocheting - I originally planned to design just knit/crochet jewelry, since I'm a jewelry designer, but I'm hooked, and have been making purses and am halfway through the back of my first sweater. My (mostly jewelry) blog is http://www.michonesign.com/jewelry-blog and my email is leah at michondesign dot com

leahmichon said...

Oops, that should have been www.michondesign.com/jewelry-blog for my blog address. sorry!
