I’ve spent this week working on Fódhla. I’ve not felt the need to chop and change projects at least for now anyway. I am now at the stage of adding on the border and it is over half way added on. I am expecting it to be cast off this week. It may or may not make it to the blocking mats but considering I picked it up just a week ago to work on it I’m quite happy with that. Of course I’m not going to give a full glory shot, that will have to wait for its reveal but here is a teaser.
When I’ve not been knitting I have been getting two designs I worked on over the Christmas period ready for printing up so I can work on the samples of them. These are some new yarns I took delivery of just before Christmas, they are destined for these samples.
I’ve also been working on the numbers for a design for this yarn. Most of the time I seem to be working on maths and numbers which is odd as I much prefer working with words than with numbers but you can’t design in words now can you? haha
