This one has been in my mind's eye for a while now, and I've finally got it knitted up
It features field mushrooms, leaves and wild raspberries, knitted under a darkening sky ending in starlight inkiness at the very top; decoration is by way of a swinging acorn tassle. pLeased with this and how well it turned out :)
Those of you who are of a knitterly disposition might recognise this from the cover of Jane Brocket's Gentle Art of Knitting. I've been after the book for a while now, and managed to get it at a really good price from The Book People; this is the first half of the stripy tea cosy on the cover, beenw anting toknit this for a long time now. I hope to get it finished tonight if I can.
The World is going to hell in a handcart and I'm knitting a tea cosy.................. ah well, at least my cuppa will be hot. :) lol
....MrsL's knitting blog. "Figheade" is Gaelic for knitting.............I had one a while ago, of a similar name, but amalgamated it with my main blog. However, I think I do enough knitting to justify a separate blog, so here it is ! I'll be putting on spinning too, possibly crocheting, but it will mainly be the knitting - what I'm working on, finished things, knitting for others, my fledgling knitting business, knitting book reviews, good links, bad knitting things (yes, they DO exist LOL). Hopefully you'll enjoy what I'm doing and feel inspired to pick up some needles yourself.
