Hi again...finished my knitted swatch for trialling my landscape yarn.
I'm quite pleased with it though I might have to re-think the stitches I use -
to hold on to the shift that happens because I have spun a singles.
I chose to use a singles so that the colours work and stay bright,
maybe I will adjust the amount of twist too - but being careful
to see that the yarn keeps its integrity of course!!
I do like how the colours and the little slant in the knit
create a shifting motion across the swatch and
how it would still create a 'landscape' effect even if you
extended the number of stitches cast on.
So there it is...Grinton Heather Moor .....knitted!
I have also managed to finish my new phone wallet...better late than never,
I was in the middle of my 'clouds and sky' weaving when I started so
the cross-stitch is a free-style interpretation of a cloud formation.
Maybe I'll stop turning my phone on accidentally while its in my bag now!
I can hope! :0)
