The gardener at Hanbury Hall was taking a short breather, contemplating how best to mow the triangle of grass so that the lines were straight and in keeping with the rest of the lawn.
We had an interesting chat about the options and – being A Knitter – I suggested the principle of short row shaping, applying it to the grass scenario. I reckoned it would work pretty well!
Elsewhere in the garden, there was more creative inspiration – the colours of the bluebells against the bright green grass stopped me in my tracks.
Back at home, the frilly edge of these tulips reminded me that I’ve been meaning to knit the Lintilla shawl by Martina Behm for quite some time.
I’m sure I have some suitable yarn in my stash … albeit in a less striking colourway – I’ll go and have a look!
Has knitting cropped up in your conversations this week? I’d love to hear about it!
