I don't know how many times I've poked myself with the needle felting tool with these. And they're tiny, really. The, uh, sheep and teddy bear, not the needle felting tools. But they're small, too.
Background noise? Oh, that's a coloured pencil piece I started at the beginning of November thinking I'd finish it easily. Whoops. Reindeer :x
For some odd reason I keep relating my illustration project to theevilstellie and her son Xander :P
Crappy photo of my fingers and the needle felted sheepie....
I've started knitting up that orange and brown yarn. Definitely harsh on one's fingers, that's for sure. It'll turn out an awesome grocery napsack, though. The ball of light orange is that bit Chris had spun and I traded out some of my thin yarn for.... And that's my orange book bag on the floor. Yes, I have a love for the colour orange, bite me :P
Old scrap that I don't think I ever posted.... Another old scrap that resides in the large sketchbook. I've dedicated that one to centaurs only... I think I posted one of them a while back ago, but she's over a year old, now.
Yay, all done. Time for more work.
So there's the book cover. Watercolours and gouache over pen and ink on watercolour paper. The scanner isn't acting properly so I took what ended up being a rather blurry picture of it. Who cares, anyway, right? I'll end up finding a properly working scanner soon and I'll impose the title and so forth digitally.
And there's the HUNTERS SUCK yarn. 102 yards, two-ply, not for sale. In response to fiber_friday's prompt 'Leftovers' for December 2nd. Kool-Aid dyed scottish black face wool plyed with a natural brown English Leicester, Salish, and Merino cross wool. Harsh and soft all rolled into one.
That's all for now. Time to go work on my sculpture final. And possibly dinner.
My lace-weight yarn is driving me insane... because it is lace-weight. Ish. That's two-ply in grease (unwashed, raw wool) yarn knitted with American size 7 knitting needles. Ten stitches across. One inch. By, uh... about seven inches, I guess (I'm too lazy to go about finding one of my rulers... they're in one of my boxes. Somewhere)... random stitches. And stockinette! Because I just learned how with straight needles. After having knitted for ten years.
And because I am boldly moving into the textiles, I'm reading up on business stuff. No touchy, it's mine. Love my books.
Cross-posted to spinningfiber. Because I can.
I've gotten a few pictures together of what little progress I've made on the watercolour... eh. I hope I am motivated soon to get it finished because I really do like it.
( Cut because there are too many pictures floating about as it is =P )
Lint thinks homemade yarn is interesting... he also thinks lanolin-covered fingers are tasty.
And for those of you wondering... I did finish that Doctor Who cutouts thing for 2-D design concepts. I haven't bothered to scan it because... uh... it's a pain in the ass trying to use the other computer. It's sooooo sloooooow.
Remember kiddies -- each square is 2"x2" (total of 10"x10" worked space) of 1-ply black cardstock. Cut carefully. And pasted onto white illustration board.
