Fair Isle for Summer
I love traditional knitting color work but, here in North Carolina, there’s not much reason for sweaters or hats, much less doubly thick ones… But color and I are learning to play nice with each other, finally! (As a former jeans-and-t-shirt girl, matching colors is admitted not my forte…) I’ve been trying to add those patterns to my repertoire and give my fingers something to fiddle with.
Yay for cross-stitching! This is a small piece (7″ x 5″ ?) but oh-so-satisfying. Some of the patterns are my own; others were found via some intense googling. I’m thinking the final piece might look good in a frame, or as separate pieces of a set of buttons… Still considering my options though. ^.^
I love my camera’s macro function to death… I want to get some macro photos blown up to poster size for my room. ^.^
So what smaller projects are you picking up for the summer? (Or if you’re on the other end of the world, got something big for winter?)
