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.
