a tease from NGV4

I feel a bit like I’m emerging from captivity, although not an unpleasant captivity, just an intense one. I spend the last month designing the pieces for the 4th Berroco volume with my name on it. Let’s refer to the upcoming book as NGV4 , eliminating the need to type my own name over and over like a crazed ego manic (or a little kid just learning to write). I swatched, I sketched, and then the hard part began. In order to actually make my ideas work I drew up very detailed schematics and wrote the first instruction. Wow, that took so much time! Why can’t I just do normal sweaters?! :)

Ok, I don’t really mean that, since I thrive on doing things I haven’t done before. So now, there are 14 sample garments (some, risky experiments and some, not so much) out there in the hands of a dozen of the best knitters I’ve worked with.

…the tease:

My pile of swatches.
