Knitting Challenge May 30, 2018

Filed under: Images,Knitting,Nature — Janet @ 10:14 pm

Here’s a challenge.  I’m trying to think of a way I can express an idea in knitting.  In weaving this would be easy.  But how to create or suggest an idea or an image through knitting.  I like to emphasize colors or rather I prefer to use greens and browns.

Thinking out loud – I suppose some of the lace stitches or cables could be used.

 

One idea – an image suggesting mushrooms in the forest

 

The Puzzle Revisited January 11, 2018

Progress has been made on the lower part of the puzzle but I’m really struggling with the upper part.  Please note the missing piece on the right of the puzzle.  THE CAT is the villain.

Meanwhile it’s still raining outside.  Rain, rain, rain.  I think I prefer it to the icy conditions recently experienced on the East Coast.  I was particularly struck by the pictures of  ice and snow in Perkins Cove in Ogunquit Maine.
