I've been working on three collections of patterns this year ~ planning started in January, then there was a lot of browsing yarn colorways and bases that would work for the collection, reaching out to the yarn dyers for yarn support -- and re-starting the yarn browsing again when a dyer wasn't able to collaborate or never responded to my communication (starting in February, but I didn't get my last confirmation until August!), and then of course the actual designing: swatching, knitting, writing the pattern, having it tech edited, and finally test knitting (starting in March and continuing to happen)!
The three collections that I am working on are: My Forever Home, A New Home, and Next Door Neighbors. Over the next few weeks I'm going to share about all three collections individually. Today I shared allllll about the My Forever Home Collection (based on my home state, Montana) over on Patreon, including the symbolism in each yarn, design, stitch, and release date that I chose. I also share photos of the yarn that I used and the finished projects.
While most Patreon posts are exclusive to members of the Snickerdoodle Knits Community, this post is available for the public to view! Head on over to this post in the Snickerdoodle Knits Community to learn all the details about this fun collection that means so much to me! The other two collection posts will be visible only to members of the community, so be sure to join if you want all the juicy insider details on those collections as well!
