Time off...

I've just returned from two glorious weeks in Turkey with family and friends. I spent my time eating, drinking, laughing, swimming (bobbing!), reading and generally recharging my batteries. I did no knitting, crochet, sewing, drawing or painting but now I'm home I'm raring to go.  I need to finish my shawl first and I also have a commission for a moth painting. Then it's time to experiment with some crochet ideas and I also have an idea for a linocut. Rather scarily, my best friend has also requested a knitted cardigan for her 'big' birthday next year. I introduced her to the joys of Ravelry whilst sipping gin and tonics by the pool and I think I may have bitten off more than I can chew!! Will it fit, will she like it? Her birthday isn't until May so plenty of time to worry about it!

The shawl is nearing completion - I've just started the border. I had to start a new skein which looks quite different to the first one - it's much less variegated. I'm hoping it will look like an intentional border effect rather than a mistake!

I'm also sorting out and generally tidying up my studio in preparation for my Autumn work!  Photos of that and some hairy painted moths coming soon!
