Chunky knitted sample...

This sample has been developed from the previous samples using more contemporary yarns and much more colour. I feel that this sample is very successful, due to the use of contrasting machine gauge's and direction of the knitting. I think the mono-filament is a little much on this sample and also difficult to use, therefore I may try a replacement yarn to stop the unwanted breaking and laddering. I believe this sample to be a great contender for my up and coming garments.

Another Finished Wall Hanging

23rd August 2014 Had a lovely two days working in my loft space, did I tell you I LOVE IT!!! I started a wall hanging at Oxford Summer School using a piece of indigo dyed hessian...... I have continued to work on this piece adding threads, shells, seaweed (washed).... .....driftwood, seaweed, suffolk Puff using embroidered stencil fabric and a pebble with a hole in it.... .....placed on hessian... .....and mounted on a canvas frame... ...this is now on my bedroom wall to remind me of my week…
