Skeins take shape

Today I've finally had a 'Jejune Day', and spent a long time painting. A ball of Happy Spider's gorgeous hand spun and dyed loveliness and some Cleckheaton bamboo...



And two of the three balls of Heirloom Baby Wool - I've changed the colours, the original wool is pale green... very happy with how these have turned out. The two other balls of yarn have just got washes done, as preliminary layers - they're next for the brush!

I'm about 3/4 done, I think ... another day will see this painting finished.

  3. You've been a busy girl! I love the colours - so bright and cheery.

    I have seen a knitted version of the shrug before - I know it's on Ravelry. And I suspect it's an Elizabeth Zimmerman pattern ...

  9. You totally blow my mind. I click into your blog and see your work and think, "huh, wonder what yarn she's showing off?" Then I realize you are showing off a painting. NOT yarn. Then I just boggle at it all. :P Your work looks great. :D
