You know how it is.
You’re standing there, with your camera in hand, on top of a splendid mountain surrounded by rolling patchwork hills of green. Or you’re on a cliff where sea birds wheel and cry, overlooking an impossibly blue sea. Or deep in the middle of a quiet woods, carpeted with bluebells in the spring. You’re trying to frame a shot but, everywhere you look, it’s so breathtakingly, heart-stoppingly beautiful, you can’t decide where to point the camera.
Been there? Then you understand my dilemma.
I’ve been mesmerized by the beauty of Wales for nearly a decade. It has settled into my heart, and my knitting. The Gothic windows and spires of Tintern Abbey, the swiftly flowing stream cascading past the old mill at Cenarth Falls, the joy of sheep’s milk ginger ice cream, from Shepards, in Hay on Wye, the waterlilies of Bosherston, and the unmistakable silhouette of a red kite in flight.
Now these, and many more of my favorite Welsh places and experiences are yours to knit. I can’t tell you how pleased I am to share this small country to the left of England, that I now call home, in a new collection of patterns and stories, Welsh for Rainbow.
