I have been nipping at my heels, creating, doing something about my work, logo, pattern template, graphic design…
That’s one of the great things about designing. I am making an effort to MAKE a picture
not just take one.
This picture is something completely different for me.
Sometimes a picture comes together just how I see it in my head. Other times, it’s all about trial and error. The key is to take ideas and run with them. I am learning to not be afraid of sharing photographs that are different, out of my comfort zone. Keep on moving forward, upward…where I may reach other fabulous, creative minds.
Dueling piano is number two in the musical instrument series designed by my friend Anne Pickering of Owl & Otter Designs. These socks are knitted toe-up, in round, two-at-a-time. Keyboard was stranded, intarsia knitting in flat. Lace-less option is provided if ribbon-lace isn’t appealing to you. Both socks can be made yin-yang as Anne had done instead of an identical pair.
The original wasn’t quite a full octave. It wasn’t difficult to add few more keys, however. I like mine lengthened to calf long–but wish I’d have continued to a pair of stockings. Yet, I am very pleased with the modified outcome. The pattern was easy to memorize and creates beautiful texture.
My test sample was finished back in November. Only today, did I finally get around to compose some modeled shots. Pattern is now available at Craftser or Ravelry. Next up will be a clarinet. Can’t wait!!!!
What’s on your needles? Or creative plate?
Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!
