On to the 20th century.

For my first 20th century building I am knitting the 'Arts Tower'.
The Arts Tower is in Sheffield and is home to the School of Architecture.
This, Mies van der Rohe inspired, building was designed by GMW and opened in 1966. It is now listed and has recently been refurbished. It's looking fantastic!

I have decided to use 4-ply wool and to knit in the round, on 5 needles, a bit like a sock.
It's working well but working with 4 colours simultaneously is resulting in very slow progress.

Still knitting in 2012

Happy new Year.
My new years resolution is to knit more.
 I have finished the classical columns;
They make a nice set .
I have now moved on to the 20th century but more about that later....
