One of those perfect moments where the artwork nearly created itself: hard-edged artwork, center-on-center composition, one thing after another. To quote my eighth grade math teacher (or maybe Don Judd): boom, done, finished. Magenta, red and white on gray stock. Doesn’t get much better than that.
The blog may be quiet, but the needles have been working at top speed on fingerless gloves for our neighborhood arts festival in November. It may seem a bit repetitive, but I find working on these one after another a fun exploration. It allows me to tweak my patterns and ideas immediately on the next version, seeing where variations will go through stitch pattern, color or even yarn weight. I get to refine my designs and make one-of-a-kind pieces. After all is done, I may have a new pattern or two to share!
