Georgia Farrell’s “A Built World” KAL begins!


Welcome to my 2nd blog for the shop – the start of Georgia Farrells’s “A Built World” KAL for Rowan, how exciting!

Georgia built up our excitement with clues about our first ‘destination’ … I
guessed right that it was Rotterdam thanks to The Beautiful South clue.

I dutifully did my tension square first and I was ready to start. You could clearly see the architectural influence in Georgia’s design … The building she chose was De Rotterdam and she posted one of her drawings of it on her Instagram feed and it so obviously translates into a knitting design.

So, I’m making the runner version and for this I have to make two blocks in the beautiful Rowan Pure Wool Superwash Worsted Teal shade and one in the very pretty Sky Blue.

The pattern is really quick and easy for this first square and I felt confident knitting it. Georgia was definitely right that beginner knitters will be able to do it.

This was also my first time using this particular yarn and it really is a delight to work with. The stitch definition is wonderful and it slides along my lovely new needles really nicely. In fact I am enjoying it so much I have bought some of the yarn for myself to knit a blanket for home! I am using the same KAL but have chosen a slightly different colourway so that it matches my room.

My attention was swiftly drawn to the clues for the next square’s ‘destination’ … a bit of a tricky one this, with the sports reference are we going to North America or, most likely, Canada? Let’s wait and see – I’ll be back very soon to let you know and show you the second motif.

I hope you’re enjoying this as much as I am!
Take care,
Jenny x
