My July 2019 project is based on the fields of wheat, in a village my family has lived for centuries. The parish registers started in 1538, my ancestors are on the very first page. This beautiful village is called Deddington, in Oxfordshire, UK. It is where I have run my ballet school for the last 21 years. My family still live there.
I made a kaleidoscope pattern of the wheat & a beautiful pattern was made. I was able to identify the colours needed to make my square.
In this piece of knitting, I wanted a plain piece of stocking stitch, but with a few flecks of of colours to reflect the wheat. I used the ‘Dot Stitch’ to do this.
The colours I used were:
Light Brown
