Frosty Winter Browns

Although this outfit was made and sold a few months ago, I thought it would be interesting to show a photograph of the finished outfit
with my inspiration for the outfit.
When I was out for a walk on the Cavehill on a frosty winter morning, I photographed the dead autumn leaves covered in frost. I really liked the colours in the photograph.
I looked through my lace weight shetland wool choosing colours that reminded me of my photograph.
Although my initial samples featured the silvery grey of the frost, I found myself focusing on the earthy brown and russet shades of the leaves.

    Nikki, I love the way you pull knitting inspiration from photos you've taken. Your samples are all wonderful!
