WIP Wednesday: Inching Along

Happy Wednseday, I can't believe it's already that time, where has the week gone?

This week I am still working on my socks, with the hopes of finishing by Friday. The foot always takes the longest, which is a bit frustrating. But at least they will both be done at the same time!

I still LOVE this pattern and am picturing mods in my head already for future use.

I FINALLY picked up my Spindle again the other night, while watching Bambi, and managed to get a decent ammount done on my Merino/silk blend roving while keeping it consistent with past batches. I guess you really never lose skills like this. I  want this done so bad, because it is so gorgeous, that I see myself working on it a lot more in the future.

And then of course there are my paintings, which are turning out spectacular as well (sorry if I seem boastful today, but I really am proud of my work!). My current one is a ball under glass, and I am going to flip this  painting over (so the ball is in the top corner) and have some ropes and such falling off it to the ground. I really do think I have found my calling with these paintings. Between my oils and these studies, I just can't see myself doing anything else for a long time.

Why I keep forgetting to use my real camera is a mystery, so for now you are stuck with a phone photo that does no justice. 

I hope everyone is having a great week. I love to hear your comments and feedback, as always. Any crits on my work is always appreciated :) If you need me I will be at the cutest coffee/book shop ever, knitting like a fool.


Don't forget Tami's Amis for all your WIP Wednesday needs.

PS : Max likes my hobbies too: He sat on my drying cardigan AND my spindle the other day. Silly kitty!


  1. Don't apologize for feeling good about your creations! That's how you are supposed to feel.

    I'm very intrigued by your painting. Can't wait to see what else is going on the canvas.

    1. Thanks! These are gouache on paper, but I have some oil paintings on canvas also. I keep forgetting to post those! Hmmm...

  2. Your socks are lovely! They do seem to take forever when you're getting near the end:)

  3. Your socks and spinning look great :)

  4. How exciting that you have found your THING! that is awesome!

  5. The purple is definitely prettier than the green. I'm glad you are spinning again!


Even if you are just saying Hello, I always love hearing from you :)
