The title is a line from Blake which was stuck in my head whilst stitching this. When I've hand stitched pieces in the past I've stuck to cross stitich so this was a bit new to me, had fun fiddling about with french knots. Taught myself a bunch of other stitches too but mainly ignored them and just did whatever I fancied.



there are some close-ups and in progress shots at my blog: http://thebluepixieknits.blogspot.com/2010/05/progress-finished.html  I'll try to upload them here at some point too but its taking an age to upload atm.
