The Northern Lights in Shetland are so beautiful and i have been wanting to use them as inspiration for a while now. So I spent the whole weekend alone in front of my knitting machine to make sure i got them right.
First I made some wraps of colours I thought could be used..
Then chose my photographs and made piles of colours to match..
And after about 16 hours of knitting, washing and changing my mind, I managed to decide on a swatch for each picture I was happiest with!
Thanks to Ivan Hawick Photography for the inspiring photos! Now its time for me to add all of my swatches and ideas to the sketchbook!
