You remember how I wanted to knit Scotland? Those colours…
So I sorted out a small pile of yarn.
I knitted this on Friday night whilst drinking a very welcome G & T and Not Doing Files.
I like the colours. I’m not entirely sure that my technique of “Look at a photo and knit what you think you see” worked.
I wondered about other ways.
I tried pixellating Tiree.
Theoretically, I could knit that, if I found a big enough pile of colours, but I’m not sure if that’s the answer either. I think maybe I’m trying too hard.
So then I took the idea of pixellation to its logical conclusion and knitted up this (inbetween Doing More Files- see how conscientious I was? It’s lucky it poured all afternoon…)
(Why, yes, that is my bathroom. It’s the whitest brightest space I could find for photos right now. Only not very light. May the sun shine soon, if only for the sake of photography…)
I have plans-which-I-can’t-work-out-how-to-execute for a knitted Tiree tryptych going round my head. This may account for my more than usually vacant expression…
