Knitting at the MCG - 2

Today we went back to the cricket for day three of the Test. I took Summer Blossoms, and it was the perfect knit for a great day of cricket. The lace rows are taking me nearly an hour each, so it was wonderful to be able to sit, watch cricket and ploy through them. In fact, I now have only for lace rows left and then its on the the back and forth short rows.

One of the things I noticed was how the grass is different shades of green, based on the mowin lines, but how it looks different at different ends of the oval - and how that changes over the day - the top picture was taken in the morning, and the one below just before the end of play. It made me consider the idea of knitting my landscape, and Felicity Ford  wrote about in the Colourwork Sourcebook, a little more seriously. Something I may try in the future.

And I leave you with a picture of the lace as its shaping up nicely:
