A sleepy, relaxing day, but I downloaded a new app (FontCandy) which has quite a nice interface for adding text to photos. I added some text to some of my previously edited photos, which was fun.
I also knitted the first decrease row on my Clapotis, as well as paring down the wedding photos for upload.
My husband and I spent the day at the wedding of two lovely friends. I fitted int he time to take some more arty photos, which I’ll add here soon – I’m focusing on getting the photos of the wedding uploaded at the moment, as I know how much I loved seeing all of our friends photos last year.
I did a lot of knitting on the Clapotis today, the final 8 rows of the straight section. There have been a lot of photos of the scarf recently, so here is my little soft toy sheep, Charlie, wrapped up in it:
Only 82 rows to go!
Two more rows of clapotis today, but no pic as it looks the same. Instead, have this picture from the post the other day, altered slightly, using a mask from yesterday’s pic.
Four more rows of clapotis today:
Here it is spread out on my sofa. It’s getting quite long now!
A quick bit of knitting, 3 rows on the Clapotis, including the best row, where you get to drop a column of stitches.
I only have one more repeat to do before I can start the decrease rows.
Another long day unpacking and sorting, so I relaxed with a quick sketch:
Based on this photo of LAND at Lowsonford
I rediscovered another unfinished knitting project while moving, Clapotis by Knitty. I knitted a couple more rows:
The yarn is a beautiful Manos del Uruguay silk. I really want to be able to wear it, so I guess I’ll need to keep on knitting!
I got the pastels out today, and did a bit of a sketch, based on a picture I took of the LAND Gormley sculpture at Lowsonford.
I love the shimmering metallic colours and contrasts of colours here, as well as all the different planes.
