Namads for NEEDLE

Earlier in the month I went to see Bita Ghezelayagh's exhibition 'A Persian Journey in Felt'. Here are a couple of taster pictures from the show, my full review can be found in the very first edition of NEEDLE Magazine. Enjoy!

Super Action Hero Fingerless Mittens!!!

I found an easy pattern for fingerless mittens on Ravelry which I knew I had to make. I used a ball of Stacy Charles Baci that I'd brought on holiday for a couple of dollars. I like the variegated colours in this yarn. The mittens only took a couple of hours from start to finish.

I have to admit I feel like a bit of an action hero with these - hence the POW!

Birds Birds Birds...

This week I have been mostly drawing birdies...
A rather proud bullfinch in watercolour.
Charcoal and pastel birdies - I like the greedy gannet and the cute penguin belly myself.
Penguin cut outs, are they happy or sinister shapes?
Using charcoal and a wet brush to create a bird in water.
And finally a little blue tit resting on some cherry blossom.
