It’s been a few days, and although I have not been post images any where, I have been finding creative moments. My one a days have been consumed with preparation for a print a thong I am hoping to have this Friday. I have been carving lino blocks that I hope to print in layers, as well as tearing down paper for said project etc. My side project has been needing my attention, as I am in the silkscreen phase of that project. But in the middle of it all I have also been spending some time with my knitting, yes I am learning to knit. The last few days I have been knitting and un-knitting a scarp, and trying to fix pair of miss shaped leg warmers that I made earlier this month.
So here goes the pics..
On a side note here is a call to artists that you may or may not be interested in.

Registration is a two-step process this year (2 easy steps!):
