Mixed fibers, linen stitch, size 11 needles
This project was one of the first in which I intentionally used analogous colors (from the "color wheel" in color theory) to form the fabric. Since then I've played much more with analogous colors and like how they work together in fabric. I like to think of three analogous colors, then sometimes stretch beyond that limit with maybe one yarn, to add something that stands out within the fabric and catches the eye.
The linen stitch is very difficult for me to do for long periods of time. There's not a piece I've tried using linen stitch that hasn't become screwed up because I can't concentrate enough to keep the same number of stitches in every row. Ripping it out makes me even more upset!
