This leads me on to one of my favourite topics: walls. (You may already be familiar with this obsession of mine from an earlier post on my "main" blog ). Here's a new selection of knittable walls from my recent visit to Thaxted:
This one has all sort of possibilities: vertical zig-zagging welts, or a lace pattern or....
I envisage this one as individual chevron strips joined by a three-needle bind off in a contrast colour.
Modular fan motifs, starting from the curved edge with welting, then maybe ribs for the centres. A peacock feather colour scheme might work well here!
Textured chequereboard. Somewhere I do actually have some swatches based on this one.
Next, a spectacular (albeit rather stained) wall that I spotted in Saffron Walden. Lots of possibilities for textured knitting!
And a close up, from a different section of the same wall:
And now, back to work!
