Knits: Socks & WIPs

We wrapped up the Cherokee Heights Arts Festival for the year with a successful event and I’m ready to try new things and get some last-minute holiday gifts done!

I’ve been knitting some cozy fall items with socks for Kurt and a kitty cushion for Ginger (both are enjoying them). It’s been fun looking through all of the great patterns on Ravelry for some fresh projects and I’ve found too many to choose from! Here are some of my recent favorites:

Wandering Rose by Rhonda Johnson – These socks are currently on my needles!

Morel Hat by Heidi Marie Robinson – A good looking slouch hat.

Rosazura by Alegria DaSilva – I think I’m going to make this for myself! I need more hats to keep my head warm this winter.

Pretty As A Peacock Shawl – This was featured in one of the Ravelry home page posts recently and  I couldn’t resist buying the pattern. I don’t know who it would be for, but it looks like a fun challenge to knit one day when I’m ready to take on a big project.

Keep warm and happy knitting!

Untitled (Composition)

Bold, simple, iconic, geometric, possibly typography. In shiny, happy, super-saturated colors. Another one of those designs that just pops into your head that you have to get down on paper.  Some people see an exclamation point. Others see a flower. Maybe I just watched a bit too much The Price is Right as a kid.

There’s also a rainy day version. Maybe this is my “Trix on Sedatives” moment. Ask Liz about that.

We’re gearing up for what looks to be another stellar year for Cherokee Heights Arts Festival this Saturday in Marietta, Georgia. It should be a beautiful day—bright, sunny and cool—perfect for celebrating the creativity that abounds in our neighborhood.

Knits and Prints will have a ton of new work to share, so come out and stop by our booth. With that in mind, here’s a new monoprint fresh from the studio—eight colors on white.
