I have a bit of a joint project to share with you. I spun this lovely Falkland blend wool form Dyeabolical on my little Dutch wheel, then plied it in my ladybug wheel.
I'm in love with the color and I think it is one of my favorite things I've ever spun. It is destined to be a knit hat and I'm so excited to begin. It is just a little bit damp, so I'll have to wait until tomorrow to cast on.
This one surprised me - I would have never guessed that it would look like this. I spun this with the fractal method and I couldn't be happier!
The Art of School
I've been hitting the galleries in search for a paper topic for my contemporary art class. Yesterday Mister and I went to a showing of John Stezaker's work. We got a bit of a personal tour by one of the museum attendants. The work was intriguing, surreal and very thought provoking. Click on his name to see some of his work. One of the pieces made a huge impact on me. When I first saw it, I exclaimed and then went to get Mister to see it. It was unsettling, creepy and with the reflection of the glass, integrated/involved the viewer.
