I worked hard on the yarn mobile over the weekend, and so I have quite a few bits to post today. I have also started attaching the work to the frame. The bike is evolving into a depiction the Whistler Eco System. I have started to place items into seasons
These are the new parts.
The second mountain to go on top of the frame. I decided to make this one more pointed. Again I used color work to show gradient.
Time Taken: 4 hours
Vine & Leaves background motif.
This section will serve as a background for the swamp lilies below. It will be part of the main frame. The stitch was taken from the Vogue stitchionary.
Time Taken: 3 hours
The first batch of many. These were fun to make. I made these on double pointed needles and then used short rows to create the shape. A nice quick knit too
Time Taken : 10 minutes per flower
Collection of Trees
The first trees. I have made two representations of fir trees and one cedar so far. All were knit free form with no pattern. I used both stockinette and moss stitch. The brown patches I have knit serve as the ground that the tree stands on.
Ground- 1 Hour , Small Fir- 1 hour, Large Fir 1 hour, Cedar 1.5 hours
You will be able to get a small preview of the work on the frame on Thursday 🙂
