Works In Progress
Currently on the drawing board is this portrait of a greyhound, recently departed. It is going extremely well - sometimes these just seem to draw themselves. This is in Derwent Drawing Pencils on pastel paper, with a little gouache to suggest the blanket he is lying on.
This knitting pattern has driven me to distraction for three days - I just could not get my head around it and kept going horribly wrong. I have to knit a sample piece for someone who is taking a degree. It was driving me crazy - I don't like to be beaten and I could not understand why this was not working out. In the end I sat with a pen and paper and noted down every increase and decrease as I made them, as well as going through the pattern (again) meticulously and eventually disovered where I was going wrong. It is so complicated...
