Pattern Language - Why Not Something Curvy?

I'm in the midst of developing a new pattern, which is (usually) an involved process.  First the inspiration, translated into black & white and/or a sketch.  Then the sketch is shifted on to graph paper.  Then the graphed design is inked on to a punchcard and eventually punched.  Then a tester is knit on the actual knitting machine.  I'm not yet satisfied with this pattern, but there is progress . . .
