art every day #14: going bonkers with yarn
what a treat! i stopped by traci's open house yesterday and filled my arms with skeins of her hand-spun/hand-dyed bonkers handmade originals fibers, a few pocket mirrors, and this outstanding art-o-licious print, then finger knitted this rope last night with a skein of her yummy wool. what to do with it? maybe a scarf, or a garland? we'll see. i learned how to finger knit with this tutorial - a super easy, very relaxing process when you want to do something, yet nothing terribly involved or taxing on the brain. now off to pick up a chocolate cake and do a frantic cleaning of the house for the artsygirl's 8th birthday (party today, birthday tomorrow.) she's asked for all preschooler toys this year, with a sing-a-ma-jig at the top of the list. going through a mid-childhood life crisis maybe? happy sunday to you!
