OFF THE NEEDLES
Yay!!! I finally have a FO! I finished the Crazy Monkey socks and they turned out to be fabulous! I haven’t decided whether they will be a gift or whether they will take up residence in MY sock drawer, even though they’re a tad snug. If you missed the details, you can catch up here.
If you’re new to knitting two at a time toe ups or just want to try the technique, this pattern is a good one, well written with easy to understand instructions.
MOMM*/THE DOCUMENTED LIFE PROJECT UPDATES
I have a couple of mixed media projects to share, along with this week’s TDL completed challenge. The challenge this week was to add a wish list. My list ended up underneath my project layers, with just a word or two showing.
The bubbles on the facing page just sort of happened when I was trying out new markers and pencils, I love how it looks!
You can read more about The Documented Life Project here.
Here are some “freestyle” mixed media projects I’ve been working on.
I usually just start out with a color that appeals to me, then the layers of whatever catch my eye just happen.
Watch the Birdie
I’ve been a little fixated on birds for a while, so they show up pretty regularly. It helps that the bird shape is simple enough for me to sketch freehand.
Drawing flowers is another recent fixation, I found a photo of a gorgeous calla lily on Pinterest and tried to recreate it.
