I just discovered that I can upload a series of photos at the same time and do this little trick called “insert gallery” and it puts them all in nicely and neatly as you can see above. (click for full-size!) The drawing was for my final critique in my advanced drawing class. I’m bittersweet about finishing this class. I probably won’t have the opportunity to take this class from Dr. Price again (the professors rotate teaching that class every year) and I really enjoyed her teaching demeanor. She is very encouraging and inspiring. I feel like I explored some artistic areas that I had been putting off for a while. I want to post a series of all twelve thematic drawings that I did for that class. Obviously, my theme was knitting and how it connects people.
About the lizard: My six-year-old sister, Katie, caught a lizard today while I was visiting over at my parents house. I just took a picture because I thought he was cute. In the background you can see that I was knitting Katie’s tank top.
Today was the last day of classes for the summer. I only have two exams next week, so there should be a lot more knitting content around here in the near future!! Yay for summer!!
The sort-of-latest installment in my series of “knitting art” that will eventually contain 12 pieces:
Oil pastel and Brown Sheep Naturespun Sport, nothing fancy. (Unless by “fancy” you mean my skills with the x-acto blade which are quite fancy, indeed.)
I have been so slack in my posting… But oh well. I have been up to a lot of things. Tomorrow happens to be my 20th birthday, too. Fun times!
For one of my art classes I have to do a series of twelve drawings on a single theme. Guess what I chose. Yup, knitting. Here is the first drawing. It is simple but a good starting point. The next drawing will have some mixed media elements (a.k.a. yarn).
a sample from my recently-completed advanced drawing class. (yay! school is over!)
I call it “Composition at 8:20 pm.”
It seems that blogging takes away some my precious knitting time. Usually this is not a problem, but recently I have had very little spare time so knitting had taken precedence over blogging for the time being. I have some pictures, but they will have to wait until Monday when I return from North Carolina. (I’m going on a retreat with the ladies from my church!)
In my absence, please amuse yourselves by checking this out. That one is my favorite, but you should see the others too. I was actually laughing out loud!
So… a lot happened in the space of time that I haven’t been blogging. My favorite of these things would definitely have to be the Punkin’ Partee at my parents house. (please excuse the excessive amount of pictures to follow)

I look funny in this picture. My pumpkin has geese
Katie was very proud of her pumpkin. (And VERY possessive.)
The pretty, lit-up pumpkins!
Here is an example of what has been keeping me from blogging (besides family fun and housework): school. This is a project that has taken up quite a bit of time in the last few weeks. It’s a relief sculpture of snakes that I made in red clay. It’s now waiting to become bone dry so I can put it in the kiln.
I have been doing a lot of ceramic work at school lately, but unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately) I haven’t taken any pictures of it.
I have actually been knitting a lot, though not on the things that I was *supposed* to (socks and mittens, curse you!). I followed the urge to knit a sweater for my baby sister, Katie (pictured above with her precious pumpkin). The sweater is very close to being done, I just need to add the hood and finish a sleeve and a half. The pattern is Lion Brand’s “Hooded, Knitted Sweater” and since I’ve been using the called-for bulky weight yarn, it has been a very quick knit, indeed. I got past the bust shaping on Wicked and I still love it.
If all goes well, you’ll be seeing some pictures of both projects very soon. (I felt like you guys might be about picture-d out for now.) Happy knitting, all!
