This year, 2019, I have decided to explore texture & colours in my knitting. I want to record this through a journal & be inspired by my home in the English countryside or places I have visited.

|Tortoise Shell Butterfly|
My September 2019 project is based on photographs taken in my back garden. All of a sudden lots of butterflies arrived on a large shrub with gorgeous purple flowers. There were so many butterflies, that my daughter and I got lots of lovely close photographs. The butterflies visited us for about a week. This is a Tortoise Shell Butterfly.
From one of the photographs, I made a kaleidoscope of colours & based my colours on the finished image.

In this piece of knitting, I wanted to show the spots of colour from the butterfly wings & the purple from the flower.
