The crisp outlines of skyscrapers against the blue horizon brings me an automatic thrill. It’s the feeling of arriving at a new city, knowing that new experiences and bustling energy await.

I will admit that I may have broken knitting, though. Knit horizontally over a lot of stitches, this is a project in which I never once uttered, ‘Just one more row!’ On the other hand, this project has lots of reassuringly simple knitting, with colour changes and slipped stitches to add just the right amount of interest.
