This week’s art

I finished a number of things this and last week (I know I was bad and didn’t have time to get around to posting last week’s art post. So here is a two-fer. I’ve been in the mood to make cowls and scarves. I think I made hmmm 3? One extra long double loop infinity scarf (not pictured here) a candy rainbow infinity scarf/cowl I’m not sure its somewhere inbetween – with matching fingerless gloves! Then today at lunch I finished another cowl.

What I’m working on!

As I said – I’ve been in the mood to make scarves and such – so I wanted to really challenge myself. So I saw this “broomstick lace” pattern and I just had to give it a try. I didn’t have a huge knitting needle of the size i needed so I improvised with the biggest watercolor brush I have in my collection. I’ve added another 12 rows since this picture….still 20 more rows to go!

This Week’s Crafty AGGRAVATION!

Returning to work has put a crimp in my craft flow but I’m starting to get back in the groove.  My aggravation today is due to the sandy colored cowl you see pictured above. The yarn was soooo soft when it was a ball in the skein, or even holding the cowl in my hands its really soft but I put it on and it tickled me, not scratchy but tickly you know? But oh well it’s going in the sell pile for the Holiday craft fair.

When I'm in the zone I can flip book pages faster than the eye can see - screaming "More Input!" I'm a book, yarn, & art supply hoarding goblin who loves to draw, make toys and craft all sorts of creepy cute things. My current habit is to listen to audio books while I'm arting it up!

    Wow – I love the cowl. And I hope you’ll post a picture of the scarf with the broomstick lace pattern – it looks absolutely gorgeous – plus very tricky to make!

    I LOVE RAINBOWS (no big surprise there heh!) so I’m especially partial to that first one you shared^^ ♥ It sooooo pretty ♥.♥ Awww, it sucks that being back to work has put a cramp in your crafty style – I can totally see that though, working puts a cramp in my reading, blogging…life o.O LOL

      Thanks! I really didn’t know I’d like the self striping yarn but this was a good use for it. I don’t make “clothes” really but lately I’ve felt the desire to (probably just because I want a few quicker easier things to put in my booth at the craft fair”

      Work is definitely putting a cramp in things but you know all of my responsibilities do. I just have to fit it in when I can. I actually went to bed early last night instead of doing any art because I”ve just been so beat and tired this past week.

      I definitely really like the broomstick lace one. Its done and I’ll have to include the photo I put up on instagram. I only plan to have a small amount of scarves or cowls and gloves in the booth. I really need to concentrate on a few things like maybe some yarn paintings and the ornaments the ones that are unique and will stand out. My husband was saying I have so many different things that it might be overwhelming to look in my booth.
