I am not really a sports fan, but my favorite team is playing in the World Series this year, for the first time in 108 years. Because of this, I decided to knit this Cubs baseball logo. I worked on it for about sixteen hours straight, and I just finished it this morning. I must admit that I am very happy with how it turned out.
I got this new app for my iPad called Stitch Sketch, and it allows you to design your own knitting patterns. It costs $7.99, and it is totally worth it. It is super easy to use, and with every color of DMC thread to choose from, the possibilities are endless!
I finally learned how to do intarsia. I had tried it before, but my finished work was full of holes. This time I was determined to learn, so I watched some YouTube videos, and figured out how to do it.
This is my own original pattern that I made with the Stitch Sketch app. It looks a little bit wonky, but this was my first time knitting intarsia, so I am pretty happy with how it turned out.
I named this design Powderpuff Football because it reminds me of a girl's football jersey from the '80s. When I was in high school they used to have powderpuff football games, where the girls would get to play.
I am going to design a bunch of these patterns, knit them up, and sew them together. I could make knitted quilts or bags. I am also thinking about selling my patterns.
