A short post today, because world events have got me down.
I have been fooling around with a new project. It involves lettering, and the knitted word. Here you can see the swatch, and other bits and bobs of the knitting process:
I think it’s quite cool, and fun to knit. I have to concentrate on knitting the words, but there is a lot of stockinette as well, so it lends itself to both tv knitting and focused knitting. The coral against the green works perfectly and feels crisp and spring-like. I am powering through:
Despite the act of knitting words, I am lost for words.
Indeed. I alternate e tween avoiding the news and reading or listening obsessively. Love the colours in your project.
I wonder if it’s another LOTR project? The letters looks like old English style 🙂
Lost for words – you’re not alone.
I really like it. Something completely different from the usual. Just what we need, a breath of fresh air.
There is for me a little solace in working with yarn. So I knit on. Thank heavens the craft is growing in design and colour. It cheers me.
I’m like Beth as well, avoid the news and then obsess over it. I can’t seem to guess what your hidden word is. I’ll wait until the big reveal.
I agree – terrible things going on right now. Even more terrible than the usual terrible. However, knitting is a solace – for me as well. And your current project is looking wonderful 🙂
Your project is very cool looking.
Ukraine- sad, heartbreaking, terrible…
