Colour Play

Here’s a creative piece from Louise, getting instruction from Nina on the fly to work her first top-down raglan.

There’s no pattern, just an adventurous knitter learning as she goes with guidance from Nina.  Louise used Rhichard Devrieze Thede sock yarn, in the popular ‘Psychedelic Hosteins’ colourway, interspersed with Ruby sock yarn.  Here’s what Louise says about her creative process:

“I started top down doing as for an ordinary raglan sweater, instructions by Nina. (1st raglan for me 🤗). I alternated 2 rows each colour until then switching up to more of the Ruby yarn, sometimes 6-8 rows of that colour. I finished off the bottom band in basket weave just because I was bored with ordinary ribbing. I picked up stitches for the sleeves and neckline and finished edges in basket weave also.”

That’s the Creative process, all right!  All the way to figuring out how to get a selfie in the mirror, because even getting photos is hard when we’re all isolating.

Great job all around, Louise!
