First Samples

The first samples are done!

While making them, I discovered a few mistakes and things to avoid. For example the ‘woven’ piece:


These 2 look similar, but in the first sample I’ve knitted every row twice, which made the sample not only twice as big, but more importantly, I think it’s a better way of using the colours; it looks better.

Something else I noticed, is that the natural light colour I used at first, is great for motives:


but doesn’t work as a background colour:

So that is why I turned to much lighter yarn as a background colour (see in the first picture).

Well, lots to learn, lots to try, lots of fun!

Groetjes, Dorien

Wat leuk om te zien, en om uit te proberen. Wat werkt wel, wat niet. Het ziet er erg mooi en kleurrijk uit!
