I also cast on for the first pair of Christmas socks, so I have a travel project:
I'm just doing a simple feather and fan pattern and it works very nicely with the colours I think.
I also took some time out this afternoon to clean up the studio. Since Christmas, I've just been more or less throwing things in and shutting the door - it needed a major cleaning!
There are still a few things I need to do (invest in a paper shredder to get rid of some old documents is one) but I can at least get in there and move around now. I've got some more jewellry ideas I want to get working on, a whole pile of mending, and the quilt, as well as some other sewing to do, so now that the studio is clean I can take some time this week to tackle at least some of it.
One of the other things I've been meaning to do is design a tattoo for my cousin. She asked if I would, way back on Thanksgiving, but then my back went, then Christmas, and I never got around to it. With the studio clean, I was able to dig out my pencil box (a full size tool box, believe it or not) and get out a rough sketch for her:Drawing has always been my first love, and I've really been neglecting it over the past year or so (damn addictive knitting). It was nice to pick up my pencils again, and I can't wait to give this one some colour. But I'm going to wait until she's seen it and decide if she wants to make any changes.
But I've got a bit of a bug now, so.. it's back to the couch to work on a few other pictures I've been wanting to do for a while.
It's been an extremely productive night... I managed to finish two other pictures. One I won't show you until the recipient has seen it first, and the other is:(Please forgive the water mark. I am thinking of making this a print, and some people tend to think everything on the internet is free)
