Creativity Queue Challenge... in my sketchbook

Well, Tammy over at Daisy Yellow has done it again! She has set forth a creative challenge that has the right side of my brain spinning. 

My house finally got listed on the market last week, and now I have to keep my house picture-perfect. Add to that, that I haven't been able to work on any big paintings because I've been so busy getting home improvement jobs done. This has left me craving a creative project.

Wanting to do something "big" but really only being able to work in my sketchbook had left me in sort of a funk. Then, Tammy said just start something! So I did. :-)




This first sketch was originally a "mistake", but I liked the look of the loops forming out of one another so I decided to draw them again...






and again...




and again...








You get the picture!







Stop by here to see what everyone else is up to!

Just in time for St. Patrick's day...off the needles

I really love Noro yarn!! The color combinations really brighten up whatever I'm wearing which is especially nice since I have a bad tendency of filling my closet with neutral colors.




And since the Taiyo in my stash just happens to be in the perfect colorway for St. Patrick's Day, I figured that I better knit up something quick!  




This project requires short rows to form its shape and is simple enough to knit while watching Star trek Voyager with you spouse. :-)
