This is the 2nd of a special order pair of Woolsack cushions for a New Zealand 2 women cycling Paralympic team. One blind and the other sighted who is the guide.
I think below the 2012 I will put bobbles in Braille
I will also duplicate stitch the London skyline just to raise it a bit.
This one will have a pale purple sky. I want to add clouds again which will also be duplicated over to raise them
One dusk and the other dawn ;)
All the knitting is complete so now I am weaving in the ends and duplicating. It seems strange to duplicate the already knitted clouds. I have always taken such care that any duplicated stitches don’t notice and now I am trying to make them show ;)
I am not sure that duplicating the skyline will work as the stitches are in a lot of places only separated by one stitch.
The braille worked out beautifully using french knots (5 wraps, then coming up again and through the 5 wraps, wrapping around and back through)
The second photo shows the true colours
