Day 206

A sleepy, relaxing day, but I downloaded a new app (FontCandy) which has quite a nice interface for adding text to photos. I added some text to some of my previously edited photos, which was fun.

   
   
I also knitted the first decrease row on my Clapotis, as well as paring down the wedding photos for upload.

Day 205

My husband and I spent the day at the wedding of two lovely friends. I fitted int he time to take some more arty photos, which I’ll add here soon – I’m focusing on getting the photos of the wedding uploaded at the moment, as I know how much I loved seeing all of our friends photos last year.

Day 204

I did a lot of knitting on the Clapotis today, the final 8 rows of the straight section. There have been a lot of photos of the scarf recently, so here is my little soft toy sheep, Charlie, wrapped up in it:

  
Only 82 rows to go!

Day 199

I rediscovered another unfinished knitting project while moving, Clapotis by Knitty. I knitted a couple more rows:

  
The yarn is a beautiful Manos del Uruguay silk. I really want to be able to wear it, so I guess I’ll need to keep on knitting!

Day 198

Today I worked into the ideas from yesterday’s sketch, simplifying the shapes and colours. I drew random polyhedral shapes, and then used various colours of pastels for raised and receding areas. I especially love the contrast of the blue areas.

  
And then I couldn’t resist messing in iColorama:

   
    
   

Day 197

I got the pastels out today, and did a bit of a sketch, based on a picture I took of the LAND Gormley sculpture at Lowsonford.

I love the shimmering metallic colours and contrasts of colours here, as well as all the different planes.
