Interesting to see what happened to my knitting over almost three weeks at Bucks Open Studios. After installing the work I wondered if any bunnies or other animals would decide I had created a comfy lounging area for them. But although I spotted one snagged thread which I assume was from a cat landing, it seemed that I only had to worry about the weather.
The rain came and went during the period of the Open Studios, and it gave us some pretty heavy showers at times. The lace knitting is very stretchy naturally and started to sag a little over time, but with the added weight of water from the rain it sank right down into the tyres. Thanks to Janet for recording it as the rain stopped. The last picture in the gallery shows how the knitting sank into a bowl shape and the yarn took on a two-tone effect as it began to dry out.
I was also pleased with how the work looked once the grass, clover and daisies started to grow. I thought it looked better than when the grass had been freshly cut. It helped to 'bed-in' the tyres and was rather lovely when it started to grow through the holes of the lace.
