I have been trying out some more textured crochet stitches and using the Rowan Tweed Aran wool. The combination of wavy texture and the blues and greens in the wool remind me of the sea, I have added little beads that catch in the light as the sun would catch sparkle in the water.
This is what a holiday by the sea does even if it is cold 😉
I love the texture of this wool and the bumpiness of the stitch.
This picture was taken last summer in cornwall, the colour’s are exactly those found in this gorgeous wool.
I will be concentrating on writing some patterns for my website over the next few weeks, I have so many ideas bubbling away and sketchbooks full of designs. I must concentrate on one at a time 😉
I have just bought some gorgeous Rowan wools to make crochet swatches. I have lots of ideas in mind using different crochet stitches and am on a mission to match the designs to beautiful yarn that can be made up into the designs. I love the colours available in the Baby Merino Silk, and the Purelife Revive. Unfortunatly the shop I went to did not have the Soft Knit Cotton which has all of my favorite colours in the range.
This little lot should keep me busy for a few days, I can’t wait to get swatching.
