I thought I’d show you some of the things I’ve been working on. I also thought that if I made myself show you what I’m working on each week, it is the incentive I need to have something finished to show you! This will also help me make smaller projects that finish faster to help me not get bogged down in projects like the never ending shawl which I have now been working on for over a year! Sometimes the unending projects can be soul draining. Instant gratification can really help (in small doses)!
With that in mind, I’ve been working on some watercolour illustrations which I’m hoping to have up on Ghoti Industries and Etsy for sale shortly. I’m really digging flamingos at the moment. Had you guessed?
There’s also this pair of mittens which I began just before Christmas to have something small to work on that was easily transportable to knit night. Of course, I haven’t had the time of energy to go to knit night since beginning them, but that’s okay. I’ll get there next week.
Sorry that picture’s so dark. I ran out of sunlight when I put lunch on for a friend!
So what are you all working on? What are you up to with yourselves?

The flamingo is great! Can’t wait to see him (her?) in greater detail.
The contrast between the two colours on the mittens looks more noticeable than in earlier photos I’d seen. Did you change the colourways or is the light different? (or maybe I should go get my eyes checked? 😉 heh)
Yeah, that’s what I was asking about if it would be too subtle. I’m still not convinced, but they give me something to do with my hands until I can get to my xmas present 😀
I’ll be interested to see what the final result looks like. It’s not as bright or as high a contrast as other projects you’ve completed, but I think the effect is still nice, a bit like looking at a bas relief, perhaps.
I think they’ll be a nice subtle “I’m going out for the evening and want to look swish” mitten.
Ah, they’ll definitely suit for that purpose!
