Before we went for our weekly walk, FB and I took a few pics of knitted garments for the website. If you've spent any time looking at patterns on the site, you'll have noticed that - occasionally - there's a picture at the top of the garment featured in the pattern as we've knitted it. So, for example, Debbie Bliss has done a garment in Fez like this:
and we've knitted it like this:
or Katia have done a top in Degrade like this:
and we/I have knitted it in Samba like this:
I always feel like a bit of a lemon when being photographed (I couldn't be a model for all the tea in China) but I think it does help to show the garments in lots of different ways.
The real surprise was this sweater:
which I'd never even tried on before as it's done in this colour:
which I thought was absolutely not my colour and something I'd never buy or wear and it turned out like this:
which FB thinks is his favourite jumper of them all!
After that we went for a walk. Straight from home and up the hill. This is the view from just above our house:
then along towards Greenbarrow Mine:
Look at these amazing colours:
Past the Nine Maidens standing stones: (FB getting a bit artistic at this point)
and on to Mulfra Quoit:
That huge stone I'm leaning against would have once sat on top of the others - if anyone can tell me how ancient man moved those giant lumps of granite, I'd love to know. View from the Quoit:
Then home via a lovely green lane:
For the true knitters amongst you, the purple jacket I'm wearing is Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Astrakhan (now, sadly, discontinued).
Next week's walk is as much a mystery to us as it is to you - watch this space!
