I have designed dolls, weaving colours to make pretty patterns, when actually if I had looked at different textures through knitting, I could create something more pleasing.

The stitches used in this stitch is:
For each row, I used a different colour, this gave a beautiful weave effect.
This concludes my Knitting Journal for 2019.
