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.
|Knitting Journal - November 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.
|Stitching Project - 2019|
|Colours Used: Blue, Green, Pink & Lilac|
My November 2019 project is based on a day trip in August to Waterperry Gardens, Oxfordshire, UK. My daughter & I had a wonderful morning, looking around the gardens. So many beautiful colours, but a very very warm day.
I sat under the arch for a very long time, as it was so warm that morning.

The colours I used were:
|Kaleidoscope pattern of collage made from flowers & trees|
I put together a collage of the main colours that I wanted to use, I then made a kaleidoscope of this collage. I used this as a base for my design.
This year, I want to explore different textures, so used a 'Fleck Stitch' in this project.
The stitches used in this stitch is:
