So, I’ve been away from this blog for a while now. Stuff has been happening, good and bad. Let’s stay with the good stuff for now – we may touch on the bad stuff in a while….
The knitting and pattern designing has been going really well. This is the latest and currently most popular design: Field Flint.
For those of you you who know Norfolk in the UK, you also know many of the buildings are built – or faced with flint. This design is an homage to the local flint architectural style.
The shawl is knitted from 200g of 4-ply/fingering yarn. I have used 100g as a main colour and made up the remaining 100g from a range of colours. You can buy the yarn especially to make the shawl, or have a good rummage around in your stash to see what’s there and will make you feel good while knitting.
In these two fabulous versions, the one on the left is made from 100g of main colour and 5 x 20g mini skeins of contrasting colours. The one on the right is knitted using a MC and one CC.
The pattern and advice on yarns to use, how the colour work is achieved (which, as with many things, is much easier than it looks), is avialable on my Ravelry page: search for Knorfolknots http://www.ravelry.com
Or – as some of you already have – contact me through this blog and I’ll get back to you.
Stay safe in these strange and uncertain times.
