This may not look like much at the moment but one day soon it's going to be a Fair Isle tam!
As much as I love crochet, it has its limitations regarding clothing. I've just got my hands on this gorgeous knitting book which is full of things I want to make and wear.
The first thing I want to make is this...
It may take a while, judging by the progress of my hat (impeded last night by a glass of wine or two, and the subsequent ripping back of a row of misplaced colours!)
I'm also experimenting with a new direction in my painting. I love painting colourful birds but have recently had an urge to paint larger, darker, more sinister looking birds. This bird is painted in a combination of acrylics and acrylic ink and is a work in progress.
It's not a great photograph - I hadn't realised how tricky it was to photograph something so dark.
However, I'm thoroughly enjoying working on a larger scale, and trying something new.
