Not a Rhinebeck Sweater

Traveller's End Cardigan

This weekend is Rhinebeck weekend, and I am not there. For the fourth year in a row. That’s ok, though, because I still have a sweater to share, and I wore it for a week in Ocean City, NJ, which is a very different kind of getaway than a weekend in Upstate NY would be, but it was nice in its own way, and perfect for new-sweater wearing.

Sun-Kissed Cardigan

I haven’t completed a knit or crochet item in seven months! It took summer to spur me into action. It took the desire for a lacey cotton cardigan to take with me on our casual nights out. And it took wanting something handmade and lovely to throw over my shoulders if the ocean breeze got to be too much.

TWiP: Elements and Earrings

This week in Pictures, Week 31, 2022

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.

TWiP: Getting all Artsy Craftsy

This Week in Pictures, Week 30, 2022

Good old Week 30 of 2022 started quietly, getting back into the swing after our little vacation. Then one of the kids came home from his vacation (yay!) and I got all artsy craftsy with yarn and polymer clay.
