I finished my first serious knit of 2011: Watershed.
This beautiful little sweater was a pretty quick knit.
I considered adding buttons, but decided that I did like how it hangs open. I like the drape of this yarn too. (Same as I used for my Ballet Sweater)
(plus, it’s machine washable.)
My only modification: 1×1 ribbing around the sleeves, I’m not a fan of rolled edges.

Now that Christmas is over, I can post some of my handmade gifts. These folding magic boxes were made at school, hand silkscreened onto BFK paper and glued with rubber cement.
They fold out into this. I put some little gifts inside the boxes for my friends.
a look at the lids . . .
& the insides!
Happy holidays !
I just finished my first semester of college (& last as an art major)
Some pieces from my drawing final. 24×17″, vine & compressed charcoal.
pigma pen on bristol board drawing. Literally took hours & hours, and my wrist was killing me after!
This is a gift for my mom, oil on canvas. I’m not sure of the exact dimensions, but it’s pretty big. The paint is on super thick, so the drying time could be weeks.
Before: light blue, 100% cotton sweater, $1.00 at a rummage sale
After: 2 balls and 2 skeins of yarn
Goal: Watershed (Ravelry link)
Sorry for the cellphone photo; this one was taken at school. Motel room oil painting, it looks like worms and spaghetti from up close. But I’m okay with how it turned out.
This is a new hat, pale purple angora yarn and a vintage lace ribbon tie.
It is so soft and light, you hardly can feel it.
