Mel’s Port o’ Leith . . .
. . . is dark and moody . . .
. . .knit up in tasty Jamieson and Smith Shetland chunky in the charcoal shade.
. . . which is beautiful to work with . . .
. . . but somewhat vexing to photograph.
The colour is perhaps best described as a faded black. It is a saturated, dusky kind of shade, and I think it gives a the garment a completely different feel to my original sample – perhaps less traditionally maritime, and more contemporary.
Mel’s Port o’ Leith turned out beautifully and is Ravelled here.
Mel and I have been very busy packing up some new kits, of a new design, which will go live in my shop on Sunday at around 6pm GMT. Pop back tomorrow to hear more!
