I’ve decided to sew all my daily pieces onto a background cloth. This is for three reasons:-
1) They will show up much better against a dark background
2) They will look much neater as the ends will be sewn down so not curling
3) They will be easier to transport
I’ve found a large piece of dark brown smooth weave woollen fabric which will be perfect. I need to have a baton attached at the top and the bottom so it hangs well.
A bit out of season today with my knitting as the stitch is called dandelion clock. No sign of any of the cheery flowers yet – everything under a sodden grey sky – all colour washed out.
I’ve done the actual formation of this stitch before, purling 3 together, knitting into the same stitch once and purling once again to re-make the three stitches but it was done across the whole row.
I also knitted a piece 10 stitches by 10 feet in stockingette – will use it to make a maquette in order to see how I could display my final piece – still undecided!
