I totally need an army of these little guys!
Tomorrow I’m taking a watercolor class with Nick’s mom. I’m pretty excited. I’ve never done watercolor before (well probably as a small child, but I’m talking a REAL watercolor painting with the special paper and tools and everything!). Nick said that if I like it and it’s something I want to get into he’ll get me all the stuff I need and more classes if I want. I told him I’m thinking about learning some more One Stroke painting stuff because that was fun to learn last week and I like doing it. I’m also considering an ATC class. I’ve been wanting to do them for a while, but I don’t feel very artsy most of the time. Maybe I just need something to get me started. Nick’s mom is going to be taking a class later in the month and I’m thinking about maybe taking one after we get settled in Dayton, OH (you know, get a house, jobs, unpack… after all that).
I’m still knitting. A lot. The Shetland Triangle is nearly done. I have one chart left to do and I’ll be done with the knitting portion. I won’t be blocking this until we get settled in or at least have a place to live so I have space to block it. I love how it’s come out so far and it’ll be bigger than the one in the book after blocking and all (I think I added 2 or 3 more chart repeats of the body chart). It took a while to get used to the silk yarn, but after a while I got the hang of it.
The Cable Net socks are coming along. I finally made the chart easier to read which sped things up quite a bit. Still have a LONG way to go, though!
Hope all is well with everyone. Keep crafting!
