Here are some photos, and all of the details, in case you want to knit one for yourself. Also: check out my fun new shoes.Read More: Liathite Sweater and New Shoes

TWiP: Elements and Earrings
So many people slow down in August, take some time off. Maybe I should have done that, too, but instead I decided I needed a creative project to shake up my polymer clay world a bit. So I came up with the Earring of the Day project, a great excuse to play with lots of different techniques.
Then, just for kicks, I signed up for a photography project. I am taking part in Picture Elements, which is a prompt-based photography class, which explores 7 visual elements of art: color, line, shape, form, value, texture, and space. Having never gotten any official art education, I think the exposure to these concepts will be valuable to me in more than just a photography capacity.Read More: TWiP: Elements and Earrings
