  • Project Details


    My April project is based around a day visit in April 2019, on Easter Sunday to Waddesdon Manor, Buckinghamshire, UK. It was a very hot day, so my family & I walked around the gardens and through the forest walks with our little dog. It was a beautiful bright day, with a clear blue sky, a perfect ice cream day.
    Waddesdon Manor was owned by the Rothschild family until it was bequeathed in 1957 to The National Trust.
    In this piece of knitting, I wanted to incorporate the three dominant colours of blue, grey & green. I decided on the ‘Garter Drop Stitch’, as the garter stitch represented the green shrubbery, the dropped stitches were knitted in blue & grey.
    The colours I used were:
    Sage Green
    Cloud Grey
    Cerulean Blue
    This year, I want to explore different textures, so used a ‘Garter Drop Stitch’ in this project.
    The stitches used in this stitch is:
    - Knit
    - Wrapping the wool around the right needle twice, before dropping it on the next row.

      Such a lovely way to remember the gardens, I love Waddesdon and you have captured the look perfectly.
