As of today I am officially switching all my knitting time to a custom project.
I’m a bit nervous, not because I can’t knit what is required. I can. And even the maths isn’t too hard as it’s a rectangular cushion cover. The intarsia isn’t a problem either, I can colour knit whilst standing on my head and whistling dixie. What’s making me edgy is wondering whether the customer will like it. I think I’ve done everything I can to make sure that what the customer wants is what I think she wants. But you never can tell.
Meanwhile, for the knitting geeks, I’ve decided to knit the cushion in the round with a 2P st edge for each side and an inside out three needle bind off at the top. One side of the cushion will have intarsia and the other side will have a moss stitch relief of the intarsia image (unless the customer says otherwise).
Oh and one last thing, the customer is a very good friend. This takes the pressure off a bit and I can learn about custom projects as I go.
