small projects

On day 2 of being sick I was already so completely and utterly bored that I grabbed one of Barbara Walker’s stitch treasuries, picked a stitch pattern with a large repeat, grabbed some cotton and knitting needles that looked like they would probably work, and made this washcloth.

The problem with the project was that it woke up the giant knitting obsession, but more on that later…

Meanwhile another huge sense of accomplishment was achieved by installing hooks behind the door in the studio to hang my no-longer-pile of bags.

Little victories.

    I loooove your desk. And your wall color. And your bags (and the hooks that so helpfully display them!)!

    I like the wall color, too…and all the interesting objects and your bags and your washcloth design and the chair and floor. Thanks for a charming peek into your life.

    I can’t wait to hear about the now awake giant knitting obsession! You must be feeling a LOT better.

    Has the washcloth already grown to a tent? Or a 2nd knit home?

    Are you really that neat and organized, or are these pics just staged enough to make the rest of us feel like total slobs? I get the feeling that just out of frame there could be a pile of papers and socks and hairy cat toys, but maybe I’m projecting. I feel as intimidated by your work space as when I look at “ReadyMade” magazine, and drool at the sexy 30 something couples wearing goggles while they hammer the last nail into electric cars made of driftwood oak and leather scraps. I so wish I had your sense of style, not to mention your eye for nice framing, photo wise. The pics are always very pleasing here.

    Well there’s a giant basket full of scrunched up paper under the hooks, I moved a ginormous pile o’ papers off the workbench surface, along with the piles of gifts-to-be-wrapped-and-mailed-2-months-late. The hairy cat toys are on the bookshelf in the living room.

    Them couples in ReadyMade probably have crap under the bed too.
