On a recent flying visit to Berrington Hall near Leominster I noticed this stonework on the side of the mansion outbuildings and it made me think of a semi-circular shawl … Those geometric shapes would be perfect to knit, and the centre flower-head detail adds a special touch. The design even has a border pattern, to complete the shawl analogy.
I love the visible repairs too – honest craftsmanship, carried out with such skill and care.
Here’s larger photo to show you the context …
Have you seen anything that has reminded you of knitting this week?
I’d love to hear about it!
