You might be wondering how I plan to do this challenge without the stitch dictionaries I normally use. So am I!

What will I do without my trusty stitch dictionaries?

Just kidding. Before I set this project up, I did a little browsing to see what is available online, and I was easily reassured. There are a lot of interesting stitches online, some so complex I can’t imagine designing with them while travelling and others so simple I can see myself enjoying them as a pre-bedtime knit.

I’ve used Pinterest off and on over the years, but it was definitely the place to go for building up my stitch library. For one thing, I can see pictures of the stitches I bookmark right there. It’s going to be important for me to have the visuals – after all, I’m going to be trying to evoke certain parts of my journey. A second reason to go to Pinterest is that it already contains a fantastic collection of stitches! It might be the best place to search for stitch inspiration I’ve found.

Here’s my pinterest board, a mix of links to individual stitches and stitch collection websites. Warning: total rabbit hole.
