I have just finished Levenwick by Gudrun Johnston – a larger piece, that was quite an interesting process, given its intricate construction – I never got bored with it, though it was time consuming, mostly as I started on it just before the children’s holiday. I have acquired several new techniques, of which the most useful are the one-row button hole and the I-cord bind-off.
I was intrigued by the name, assuming it had meant something in Old English – it turns out Levenwick is a tiny settlement of houses in Shetland, where the designer was born. I have found a picture of the Levewick cliff and suddenly I understood the pattern.
Thank you, Gudrun, for a wonderful sweater I am sure to enjoy this coming fall!
