First time making fingers.

Here are a few items finished at the beginning of the year. The yarn was so lovely to work with. I may or may not be falling in love with alpaca.

WIP Wednesday

Posted on Wednesday, November 23, 2011 in Arts and Crafts

I finished a project today.

Most of my in-progress projects aren’t photo worthy, they are only bits of yarn on a hook.

Here are some photos of a tank top I’m working on.

Sorry about the weird lighting in the last photo, but I didn’t feel like futzing with things to get it “just so”.

I’ve ripped out and restarted this project more time than I can remember.

Stunning Dyed Silk Art Evokes the Slow Tragedy of Climate Change

Beautiful work, but sad at the same time when one thinks about what it is depicting.

Conceptual Knitting

Conceptual Knitting

I came across this project about a month ago. The idea intrigues me. But I don’t want to make a scarf and I don’t knit. I will probably be making little squares of puffs and making a big, giant blanket with them. There will most likely be more shades of gray than blue.
