I loved the way it fit every body working the booth. I loved the varied palettes each knitter had chosen.
I loved the thoughtful, mathematically elegant, figure-flattering design – these are all characteristics I strive to achieve in my own designs, so I definitely appreciate them in others’.
The problem is, I seldom have time to knit someone else’s pattern. But Monomania… Well.
Had. To. Have. It.
Here are the first few inches of my version, with the color palette in deep greens and blues sparked by chartreuse.
Still in love. Can’t knit fast enough.
Meanwhile, having completed all twelve of the designs for my upcoming knitting book, the reason I can knit my own Monomania is that until the end of this year I “get to” knit whatever I want. As soon as 2014 rolls around, however, I’ll be working on a new set of designs for another knitting book project.
