Stitching Project - Knitting Journal - Avoncroft Museum of Buildings - Worcestershire - October 2019

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.

Stitching Project - 2019
I currently design doll knitting patterns, but I know there is more to knitting than just 'stocking stitch' & trying to make the perfect looking doll, which doesn't look as if it is hand knitted. 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.

I used the design of the chimneys for the knitted piece

I used the colours candy red & grey

Diagonal Garter Stitch

My October 2019 project is based on a day trip to the open air Avoncroft Museum of Buildings, Worcestershire, UK. What a wonderful day we had, with our little dog & a picnic. The buildings are all original, rescued & re-built in the museum grounds.

I was really taken with the chimneys. The brick work around the chimney was really unusual, so I wanted to create a piece of knitting with this in mind.

I wanted to show the diagonal texture & pattern of the chimney.

The colours I used were:
Candy Red

This year, I want to explore different textures, so used a 'Diagonal Garter Stitch' in this project.
The stitches used in this stitch is:
- Knit
- Purl
