When is enough enough? Making up these patterns inspired by South American motives is so much fun to do. But I guess I have enough now.
Two more sets of motives I made: in the middle you see all these triangle shaped motives. Some of them a bit nicer than the others; but all of them usable. In fact the brown one almost on the bottom, I think is suitable for a Tudor inspired knitting project as well.
On the left of the picture above, you find a couple of animals, which you can find a lot in especially the textiles from Peru.
When you look at the pictures of original Peruvian textiles, you see that the proportions of the animals are always a bit off. It was hard to figure this out, but I think the idea is okay like this.
So now, all I have to do is to think of a way of combining some or maybe even all of these motives into one pattern. A scarf would be the easiest thing to do, so I guess I’ll just start with that.
Today I went to a textiles market. Lots and lots of fabrics, and I even bought a few, for PJ’s for my son, shirts for me and jeans for my husband. I’ll show when I use them.
Something I found too was a big surprise, considering what I’m working on:
Might I need some more patterns for my knitting project, I only have to look at this gorgeous fabric.
