Day 215 : Gaucho

Day 215 : Gaucho

Yes, another knot - a gaucho knot. Now, I did one that was made somewhat differently (there are many variations) in my 2016 challenge, but happily did not name it gaucho...

I have used a waxed knotting cotton - the colour is too dark, I've had to really lighten this image for you to see what's going on. I added the little line of light thread as I knew it was a bit dark, but even that didn't help much. It is a nice pattern on the gaucho knot though, so I may have to try a variation in something a little clearer. 

A long day weeding the garden today, I'm worn out. That's why I'm posting so late. Still, had our first kohlrabi (a purple) and made it into chips for dinner. Very nice too. My kale have been laid on though - have tried to clear the leaves with eggs, hopefully caught them all. They were fine on Friday, arrgh. We were enjoying the kale too! Some background - I am not a gardener. I prefer to live where there are sturdy, well-established fruit trees I can just pick when its ready!! But like so many, we decided during lockdown to try to grow some veg, with literally no knowledge, haha! 

Back to the button...
