I’d much rather be working on this than working. Lace and cable knit shawl design!

Though, after thinking more about what I want this dream-shawl to look like, I think I am going to try to make a “simpler” shawl to start with. Since I haven’t designed anything before, and I don’t want to be overly ambitious and bite off more than I can chew.

This second-but-now-first shawl is more geometric than organic/botanical. I have been thinking about either offering it as a for-purchase Ravelry download or trying to submit it for publication somewhere.

Downside of publications is that I can’t show any pictures of it online, if I want to submit it. Boooo… But, it would be amazing if it was accepted for publication.

And, if it’s not accepted, then I can post all the pictures I want, and offer it as a self-published pattern. Independent knit designer, what?
