More Potato Chip Knitting

When I knit my Inspira I used the term "potato chip" knitting - someone asked if that was my phrase and I must admit I first heard it from Gigi of The Knitmore Girls. Potato chip knitting is something that is addictive and you say "one more row" (perfect for my blog title). The Inspira was truly potato chip for me - this Daybreak was another potato chip experience.

This is my third Stephen West pattern I've knit and I am constantly amazed by his brilliance in design, colorwork, structure, and pattern writing. I simply LOVE his patterns. I've heard via other podcasts that he might be venturing into sweater design - I can't wait to see what he does.

I have materials for one more Daybreak - I'm taking a break but I think it might be my sit on the beach knitting this summer. I do want to make a Spectra too...it looks like it might have that "potato chip" quality.
