I’m a bit behind on this journal, so I thought I’d share my knitting projects from this past winter (almost in time to use them again):
I was attempting to use up the profound amount of yarn I’d acquired and horded, so I made up this simple rainbow blanket. My cats love it.
And here are some other assorted projects I’ve been working on, such as scarves, hand warmers, and baby booties.
Below are a collection of jewelry that I have assembled, rather than created proper.
First up, some glass “leftovers” I found at a local store for $.79 apiece and made into pendants (ie, attached a bail on the back):
I also found out that one of the leftover settings perfectly fit one of my resin molds:
My dad was recently disappointed to find a geometric coloring book image I sent him was not, in fact, drawn by me. In the interest of proving I do, in fact, draw, here are some images I recently made up during my compass fascination. Drawn using permanent markers and Crayola markers (my usual).
I have always loved drawing eyes, especially green ones.
Andrew gave me the task of drawing a symbol for Athena, but I got a bit carried away. If I was being favorable, I’ll say I intended to draw her shield instead.
Many ringed doodles.
Andrew also tasked me with making a symbol for Hephaeustus (bottom left). It could be a forge or fire, but it could also be a flaming piece of dog doo. Not sure which . . . .
My freshman year of college my artist dabblings mostly took a break. I was starting in a new school, in a new part of the country, and I was going to be an oboe major (yet another, more time-consuming, more expensive dabble of mine), so there wasn’t much time for drawing.
But then I took a trip with a friend to watch a kayaking competition. While the competition was mostly fascinating, there was a lot of down time. I had come prepared with those metallic gel markers, a packet of very basic colored pencils, and a sketch notebook. This began a small series of drawings based on those items around me at the kayaking competition, namely kayakers and nature. Also, a cross, because I used to be religious. But, I have always liked the work I did on that weekend and though kayaking has passed me by as a hobby of interest, the pictures bring back really great memories.
