Well, what’s on YOUR workdesk this Wednesday? Hop over to Julia’s blog (see WOYWW link in my sidebar) to join in the world’s biggest nosey fest and see how messy we all are in our creativity.
First of all, thank you so much, everyone who left such lovely comments on my blog last week, about my Venetian mask zentangle. I’ve never had so many “Wow’s” in my life!! I haven’t done any serious zentangling since finishing that project, but I’ve done a few sketches in my Art Journal (yet to be photographed).
As for this week, I’m afraid not much has changed on my desk apart from the absence of the mask picture which has now winged it’s way to Spyder who is giving it a good home!
The reason for the absence of change on my desk is because I’ve been doing things away from the desk (i.e. mostly on the recliner…) – I’ve done quite a lot more of my knitting, so I thought I’d show you that this week. I am now up beyond the armholes on the front, and it’s coming on well.
Here’s another view of it. You can see that I have started the patterned yoke section a few inches above the armholes.
Here’s a close-up of the hem.
I thought you might like to see what the reverse side looks like – when working with two colours I always weave in the inactive yarn with every stitch so there’s less to catch on the inside – I hate those long strands you get on the inside of machine knitted garments. The whole thing will look better once it’s completed and blocked.
Also on my desk you will notice my everlasting Choc-a-Bloc project and the little bowl of mint imperials (sorry, air dry pebbles lol!) – I am still waiting for my clay extruder to come, after which I should be able to get on. Also this week I’ve been continuing to work on the video of the making of this project.
Not much else has been going on except for a bit more clearing in my ARTHaven. This week I got all my huge sheets of mounting board down from the top shelf, and put my big self-healing cutting mat on the floor and cut them all down to a manageable size, and they are now stacked up with my other card and paper ready for use.
Here’s hoping you all have a fulfilling and creative week with lots to show us next time! Happy WOYWW, everybody.
