I remembered that I had a larger v-shaped print block left over from Module 1 work and so tried it to give a different scale of pattern.
The next thing I need to do is to knit some garter stitch and stocking stitch samples using a thin, smooth cord and large needles, so that the tension is much looser and I will be able to examine the structure of the knitting stitches.
(I had done all this work before I read Anita Bruce's wonderful article on "Knitting as Drawing" in the September issue of "Workshop on the Web". See Anita Bruce's blog http://www.anitabruce.tumblr.com/ and her website http://www.anitabruce.co.uk/ to admire her wonderful work. Honestly I did come up with my sketchbook idea independently!!)
(PS I haven't done all this work since Sian posted the details yesterday. I must admit to starting a week ago, anticipating what was to come.)
