I am swatching and researching stitches for a gansey-inspired bed cover. This is a tiny home retirement hope chest project. I imagine I will blog each square when it is complete, and share information on the stitches and what they represent, and why I chose them. Maybe I’ll include some charts and sketches?
This is my progress so far. A swatch! I love this Cascade Yarns Ecological Wool!
I pulled out my old gansey books and laid them out to photograph. Of course JoJo had to get in on the action.
Work and the holidays are keeping me very busy, but as you can see, I am still finding the time to dream and design and knit! 6 more days! Ho Ho Ho!
