The weaving is 4" tall now. When it gets over 6 inches, I can 'turn back'
that means mirroring the pattern (as much as humanly possible!) so that it is symmetrical from top to bottom. I really like to work on it when a little bit of sunlight comes in across the workspace -- usually in the midmorning. It seems to me that in natural sunlight I can see things down to the tiniest of details, much better than in artificial lighting. I love to draw 'in a sunbeam' as well ;o)
Busy day today -- lots of things got done! The snow is almost all gone here. In other news - I'm getting things ready to reopen the KnitOwl and friends shop. I need to make and mail Alee's aliens!
Sharing some linkys:
Awesome t-shirt designs from Robert Mars. I love to do this kind of work as well in my art -- structural designs, analogies between structures, symbols and systems. Check him out!
Nooka watches - the strangest and most interesting product change I've seen in a while. You could be staring at one of these on someone's arm for a good while before getting up the courage to ask - "Excuse me, what is that thing? A Watch? Really? COOL! Err.. how do you read it?" Comes in several designs, for even more interesting confusion ;o)
Milly Molly Mandy printmaker's shop I saw when visiting Jhoanna's site - I love this one!
AlthaeaSoaps etsy shop - I love her Yuzu olive oil soap, it smells extremely yummy!
