Yup. Blogging is pretty much a once a month, maybe more if I feel like it, thing. It's not that I don't have things to share, but I have so many other places I am sharing things on - Ravelry, Instagram, Facebook - that sharing on here keeps taking a back seat.
Starting off with some new oil paintings. Smaller works on wood. Not my best, but not awful either. I really just needed to knock out a couple more before my show in Salina next week.
Second "Bad Oyster" shawl and already planning a third. This one was a shop sample for W.C. Mercantile. Playfully titled "Poseidon's Oyster".
My blue shawl is about 8 rows away from being complete, but that is slow going given the current size. I am hoping to have it done for my art show next week. :) Knitted in Alpha B Yarn (which by the way is a very yummy yarn!), this has been a very fun project!
Since I have left overs from my two Bad Oyster Shawls I decided to make socks. I wanted them to be opposites, but alas I did not have enough green to do so. So I just kept going and let them be playful.
And then there are road trips that result in new yarn. This is from Twisted Yarn in Spring, TX. Ella Rae Lace Worsted (oxymoron?). I got it in the clearance rack and now I am dreaming of two color shawls. But I can't decide on a pattern (Just too many!) so I am thinking of designing my own...
And a second yarn shop on my trip, ipurl in The Woodlands, TX provided me with this yummy "Raspberry Lime Sorbet" yarn. I can't decide what this will be, as it isn't recommended for machine wash, so socks may be out....
I hope everyone had a wonderful June! I am heading back to Kansas on Sunday for a week or so. I have a show opening there and also family that will be around. I'm pretty excited to get away from here for a bit.
