I wanted to learn a couple of new skills this year, 2019. I decided on improving my knitting skills, exploring texture & colour, I also wanted to learn 'Blackwork', something I have wanted to do for many years.
|Blackwork Project Journal - 2019|
I started with a study of squares & went from there. I used 2 strands of black DMC embroidery thread for the study, but I feel that using 1 strand would of made the work much neater. I practiced mindfulness while stitching, & I was able to take this to work, before I started to teach ballet.
|A Study of Squares|
I created the larger pattern, which is a larger version of the last 8th square at the top of the work.
Next month I want to experiment with colour & squares.
