A few weeks ago, Cory came into the yarn store where I work and was looking at the Malabrigo Rastita. I told her that I really wanted to knit something with it, but I wasn’t sure what. She said that she also kept looking at it, but wasn’t sure to knit. And so… we decided to do a design challenge.

We each have 2 colors of Rastita to work with, and we’re each going to design a project with it. But the exciting part is that we’re going to blog about our design process and pattern writing along the way.

You can read Cory’s side of the story over at her blog, indie.knits, and of course you can read my part right here! I hope you’ll join us in our journey as we design and knit our projects.

Saturday we met up to discuss our plans, and I snapped a quick picture of my yarns by Cory’s swatch. (Already she has a sketch and a swatch, and is way ahead of me!)

IMG_1422 We’ll be posting for the next few weeks about our designs, and at the end we’ll each give away a kit for our design, so stay tuned!
