Yup that's right. I know it's the summer, I'm not crazy. As I stated in this post, this is the very same cowl pattern that I found very tricky before. Determined not to let it defeat me (and maybe I am crazy after all) I made another one in Cascade Eco Cloud (a delightfully soft blend of undyed merino & alpaca) as a gift for my Aunt who hosted our wedding reception this past weekend (more on that soon, I promise!).
As a bonus since I have so much to share with you all, I thought I'd show off a house project I'm pretty proud of both the result & finally getting done:
Back in mid-June I talked about how we had stacks of art everywhere waiting to get hung, and my plans for this lovely art collage. I attempted to build a shape that both looks good now and is also dynamic enough so that we can add and subtract as we get more art.
Some of you have asked where this area actually is in our home: it's between the front room & kitchen on the main level. It's sort of the hallway between the two & the landing to the stairwell but in open format. Here's a pictorial idea of the layout:
|Our front room/ entry to our home (BEFORE we cleaned up!)|
|That room leads into the hallway/ stairwell landing/ art gallery wall.|
|Which leads into the kitchen. (Way cluttered photo just after I painted).|
So there you have it. Hopefully once we finish everything I can shoot some photos that better illustrate this!
Question: What have you been working on lately?
