Earlier this year I was asked by a yarn company to design four blankets using their yarn. I had to think really long and hard about it because it's not something I've ever particularly wanted to do, not really a route I wanted to go down and to tell you the truth I didn't feel that confident I could do it and most of us tend to avoid stuff we're not confident with!
After a lot of pondering I decided to give myself a chance, challenge myself, and have a go. What's the worst that could happen!? If nothing else I learnt that I have a love/hate relationship with designing. One day I felt confident, the next I doubted myself completely, my bin saw a lot of action!.....I'm not sure I'd want to go through that self doubt regularly!
Anyways if you've been following me on social media you will have seen me refer to my 'top secret project' over the last 6 months and I'm really pleased to say that this project is all now finished.
Pleasd don't expect to be blown away by amazing ground breaking design! I had no intention of these blankets being really complex as I wanted them to appeal to all skill levels. Repetitive patterns, fairly easy on the brain but also contemporary.
I'm not entirely sure in what form or when the yarn company will be releasing them at this moment in time but I do know they will be available online and at some point this year. I will update you when I know more. For now here is a peek of my four blankets :)
