    About

    My June 2019 project is based around a day trip to the Coughton Court, Alcester, Warwickshire, UK. Inside the house, there were some beautiful stained glass windows, the colours are very vibrant, so I decided this will be my inspiration for my project this month.
    I used the basket of fruit & leaves from the stained glass to make a kaleidoscope pattern, to depict the main colours needed for the project. I was delighted with the finished photo, very detailed & really brings life to something historic.
    In this piece of knitting, I wanted to incorporate the three dominant colours of the kaleidoscope photograph. I decided to use the 'Stocking Stitch Triangle Stitch'. I think the combination of garter stitch & stocking stitch give texture for fruit & leaves in the bowl.
    The colours I used were:
    Brown
    Yellow
    White
