When I design the Knitional Park stickers, I try to pick a spot in the park that will be recognizable to people who have been there. I do lots of photo research, particularly for parks I’ve never been to. Here are a few of the real-life parks paired with their fiber-themed illustrations!
Glacier National Park
For Glacier National Park, I thought the view from the trail above Grinnell Lake was just gorgeous! The turquoise color of the water with the mountains soaring up behind it was the perfect scene to capture in the sticker.
Olympic National Park
One of the tricky things about the National Parks is that mountains abound! While all gorgeous, I find I sometimes need to avoid the obvious and mix up the mountain scenery, which is exactly what I did with Olympic National Park. This sticker focuses on the Hall of Mosses in the Hoh Rainforest!
Congaree National Park
Where? Congaree seems to be one of the lesser-known National Parks, but when I read about its rainbow pools, I couldn’t resist. Caused by the oils from decaying vegetation and just the right lighting an weather conditions, these rainbows pop up from time to time turning the swamps into pools of color!
