When it's cold, when I'm sick, or in pain I like to stay bundled up in bed. Though that feeling generally only lasts for a short while before I get that itch to get up and get some work done. I'm currently working on various commissions and a new cowl for my winter wardrobe.
I want to mention that I'm super happy to see my Etsy shop has 300 followers! I just think that's pretty awesome.
I think Xena is so cool!!!
Here is a sketch of her and of Gabrielle, too. I thought about Xena from seeing the photo of the re-designed Wonder Woman for the new Batman/Superman movie yet to come out. Diana's outfit reminded me a lot of Xena.
Almost half the year is gone and I'm really happy that I've been sticking with my yarn diet. I told myself I wouldn't buy any new yarn for this entire year.
It hasn't been easy with some of my favorite stores having sales recently. I've tempted myself a few times and even visited my local yarn shops twice so far but I haven't made a purchase yet. Some easy things to help me stay focused are
1. Not finding colors that I like for sale.
2. Picturing my current stash in my mind which reminds me that I still own plenty of yarn.
I might not make it through the entire year just because I know I like to buy a skein or two come the fall but I'll see if I can hold out.
I love watching the BBC Sherlock series starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman. I think it's ironic that I'm into watching it because I had, some time ago, illustrated a short comic titled, "The Fangirl's Tale" written by Pat Shand that was about the series. At that time, I hadn't seen a thing about the series except for some promotional material. I thought I would not like the show and yet here I am so thoroughly enjoying it (after I had randomly come across it on t.v. earlier this year.)
I think the two actors work brilliantly together. I love the fact that they are both in The Hobbit, too, and I can't wait to see the third part of that trilogy come out.
When it gets really cold and pullovers, cardigans, shawls aren't cutting it... nothing does the job better than a good ol' blanket.
I might think about knitting a large wrap. Something earthy with big cables all over it.
I know last year I thought about cutting back on my knitting time... but I don't want to. I love knitting. I am, however going on a yarn diet and I plan to only knit from stash. We'll see how this ends.
