Well, this week is school vacation week. I took it off to spend some time with the kids. In some ways I'm very glad I did, as trying to work while a 40 lb moaning creature lays on your lap can be somewhat detrimental to actually getting things done. In other ways, I look at the knitting I refuse to touch while I am continually bathed in effluvia and sigh. But, I did do my taxes, so that's something off my mind.
I've been busy. Very busy. It might be easiest to do this bit as a photo series. These are photos of things I've been working on for the show in March at the local coffee shop. I'm going to give some detail shots, but not too many of the full shawlettes. I'm hoping they'll be a pleasant surprise for folks in the area who can check them out. And anything that doesn't find a home from the shop will make it to my artfire store, so it's always possible you'll see them later on that page.
Let's start with this:
|malabrigo silky wool in indicita. Needs ends woven in|
|same yarn, same colorway, testing a concept|
|for the record, going with the bottom for the full size shawl|
|I really do like their stuff|
|detail showing the new increase. I like this method better. There aren't missing threads, there are dark beads between leaves.|
|to show the natural colored yarn and the pink beads|
This leads us to this one. Same pattern, in a familiar yarn:
|man, this is hard to photograph. It is NOT neon in real life.|
Then, I think pink.
|linen yarn. Yes, I made a linen shawl. In worsted weight no less.|
|don't look like much at the moment|
Anyhoo, I am hoping small tummies are quiet tomorrow so I can 1 knit, 2 blog, 3 work on hang-tags. All the fun things in life and cleaning the kitchen too!
