I am a visual person. Therefore, anytime I start something new, I like to have a visual representation of the final object and how I am going to get there. A map, a diagram, a blueprint, they are all works of art all to themselves. Since I was planning on doing a few adjustments to the pattern, I wanted to document my thought process, sizes, increases, calculations and to have a running checklist of where I am at. The point is to create one sheet of paper that tells me all I need to know about a given piece of knitting, in this case, a sleeve by creating a reference guide.
I have always enjoyed creating. It didn’t matter if it was painting, woodworking, or now fiber arts. There is something about mastering a new craft that is ever so enticing and invigorating.
