    About

    My May project is based around a week visit in May 2019, to the Sandringham Estate, Norfolk, UK. My husband and I, plus our little dog, stayed on the estate with our caravan. Bella, our dog just loves walking around the country park, trying to find rabbits and squirrels. The leaves on the trees and the fern was only just starting to grow, but it is still a lovely place to relax and unwind during May.
    Sandringham, is owned by HRH Queen Elizabeth II and has been in the family since 1862. The family traditionally spend Christmas at Sandringham.
    In this piece of knitting, I wanted to incorporate the three dominant colours of the trees & fern, brown, green & orange. I decided on the 'Speckled Rib Stitch'. I think the combination of long stitches and bobble stitches, give the impression of the trees & the country park floor.
    The colours I used were:
    Brown
    Green
    Orange
