Knitting designer problems.
I also finally got my cascading leaves and vines shawl blocked. I had a lot of fun with the other test of a pattern, so I am excited to get another going. It helps people to have a picture to know if they want to test it or not.
I'm also having some designer issues in my head. I thought of a fun shawl idea, but it was so easy I figured someone else had already done it. Then I thought about it more and thought of a variation on it. I have been checking to see about the original on Ravelry, but so far I have not seen it. I tried "block shawl" and found nothing. I have been browsing through "stripe shawl" but there are over 100 pages of patterns to look at. I'm on page 51 and so far I have not found the original idea I had.
So now I'm wondering if I should make two patterns, one pattern, or a two-in-one pattern. I also need to get my hands on some yarn in the weight I want before I can do any of this. It will give me some more time to think it over.
