I became quite fascinated (am I turning into a geek?) with following the journey of the yarn in each row in the different stitches. It fired off interesting concepts in my mind such as tortuous journeys, tracks and trails, intertwining and interlocking. In the second part of the sketchbook, I look forward to exploring some of these ideas and also using the text of knitting patterns in some sort of imaginative way (if I can think of it!).
I'm no longer feeling guilty about stealing time from my Certificate coursework for the fun sketchbook projects since I am discovering that the one feeds off the other and gives ideas for techniques and approaches to try.
