NKBN: Crosshatch

A weekly feature on the blog, NOT Knit by Nat highlights great patterns by budding designers on Ravelry

I have a confession.  I am in a knitting funk.   I'm having a major case of startitis.   I'll knit something for a night, put it down and never go back to it.   How do I get out of this funk?    I feel like I need to frog everything I have on the go.  Lighten up my stash of yarn I know I will never ever knit with.  I need to pick a pattern.   I need to buy brand new yarn for that specific pattern.  (Buying new yarn will surely help, don't you think?  Come on.  Agree with me).  I need to start that pattern and finish that pattern and don't start anything else until I do.     What do you think?    What do you do when you get in that funk?

Maybe I need to start to knit socks.    Like fellow blogger  Natalie's Crosshatch pattern?   It's a good one!  Great for handpainted yarn.     Handpainted yarn will help, don't you think ;-)?

Check out Natalie's blog too! Keeping us in stitches


  1. Thanks for featuring my design!

  2. Have you looked into making actual plans for your yarn? It doesn't have to be specific (unless you want it to be). I usually go with: I want to make X, Y, and Z and then find yarn for it. You can go further and say, I have A, B, and C and I want to make socks with A, a shawl with B, and this specific pattern with C.
