Works in progress.

I’d like to share a couple of the designs I’m currently working on. The Prairie Schooler is a long thin design showing all the months of the year. It’s taking me a while to complete – I suppose it would help if I only worked on one design at a time!

The canvas work will finish as a very small hanging bag. It’s a new design to me which I have changed quite a bit from the pattern but I plan to finish according to the instructions. It’s working up quite quickly.

I hope you like them.

Choosing colours.

Am I the only person who finds it difficult to make final choices in colour. Whether it’s for a cross stitch design or knitting or canvas work – I take forever to make my final choice.

I am so conservative in my colour palette and find it hard to add in “ugly” colours or bright colours – I tend to opt for muted tones all the time.

This is the palette I have chosen to knit a fairisle scarf design in the new Rowan magazine. The wool I have chosen is a mix of wool, cashmere and microfibre.

I’m looking forward to getting started – it’s knitted on a circular needle which is something I haven’t done for years.
