Celtic Knot Cross-StitchAugust 3, 2007 at 8:18 am | Posted in Embroidery | Leave a comment
I spent two very enjoyable weeks travelling through Ireland. I always liked the knotwork designs that are visible in so many places there, so I was delighted to find a needlework pattern with a knotwork motif to take home:
This is a pattern for a greeting card produced by Celtic Cross Stitch, and the finished motif is just 5*5 cm in size. It is a nice and easy pattern, and I was able to finish it in just a couple of days while still on holiday. The blue of the background is actually a lot darker than in the photograph.
There’s more to come along those lines, since I couldn’t resist buying another pattern, but I haven’t even started that one yet. It comes from the Book of Kells Collection, depicting the letter “R“.
I also bought a number of needlework and design books, and I’ll give you a short review of those once I’ve actually read them.
