I got this book recently, so I spent time reading it from cover to cover. It is quite a lot like the class I took with Katie but has some new stuff too I like it.
I did this face in my journal a little bit at a time. I started with pan pastels and added wc crayons, acrylic paint and some oil pastels, It sure felt good to play again.
In looking for entertainment while I heal I pulled out this book which is full of good stuff.
and this one too. Its been nice to revisit these books. There is so much good information that they really deserve a read several times. I may not be able to do much but I can read and dream.
I have been reading this and loving it. Its set in Ireland and talks a lot about spinning and weaving and the history of Irish knitting patterns. It really made me want to be knitting again. So I picked up this pattern for hat and began it again.
I had started it last year but the yarn I chose was not working so I set it aside. I am now using the same yarn, double stranded and it looks great. My yarn is a silver grey handspun that is wonderful to work with. I am in a happy place with it.
