I've just had some new protos in for next winters knitwear and I just had to tell everyone, they are amazing.

Its weird doing my job sometimes:

I have an idea

I draw it

I create a coloured drawing of it

We argue about it should it be in or out

I create a technical drawing of it

I create an excel specification sheet and send it to our supplier

I send artwork (this was artwork created from scratch, stitch by stitch) to our supplier

I wait a bit

I answer some questions

Then I get a proto, sometimes its bad and sometimes its great

Then I remember that through all these processes there was an idea, a vision and now I have a thing which I have designed and has been created for us.

And you get to wear it all next year :-)
