Privy Garden Pillow
Privy Garden Pillow
The Privy Gardens were kept private until the 20th century and have been restored to their 1702 glory. They showcase a formal symmetry featuring graceful curved gravel paths winding between yew and holly bushes. It was the lines traced by the paths that I tried to capture in this design. Curved lines in cable patterns are very difficult to achieve so I used appliqué I-cords along with the traditional knitted-in technique. I selected seed stitch for highlights, to add texture and reference the gravel stones. Then set each pattern in mirror image quadrants to follow the symmetry of the gardens.

Blossom Branches Socks
Blossom Branches Socks
This branching pattern incorporates tiny bunches of eyelets to give the impression of flowers. The colour is called raspberry but it makes Fiona think of the darker wine-like pink found in the centres of cherry blossom blooms. When choosing shoes she always pick one up and hold it to see how it will look to me when I’m wearing it. So I applied this notion to this sock design. The pattern changes at the ankle so that the branch effect can be seen not only by an admirer but also by the wearer. Designed by Fiona Ellis www.fionaellisonline.com
