Threads of a Creative Mojo

Sleek. Sexy. Chunky. Fun. Fabulous! These words are all appropriate when describing Vogue Knitting's Holiday 2009 edition. Honestly, they had me at, "Cowl."

Think Big from VK Holiday 2009 preview. Saved to my server.One of these beguiling beauties is just the thing for both gift-giving and stash-busting. Chunky yarns? I has it by the suitcase. Some might say I over-bought. Three hyphenates in four sentences. Too much?

Now, for a brief update on another knitting project: my little friend, the Leaf Beret. I feel like I'm in that commercial for the online genealogical search engine - I finished my first leaf! If you recall, my first attempt did not go well. I went with a Louet sportweight wool this time and the quickie fit checks prove satisfactory. I won't go getting all excited, though. At least, not until that final decrease row. Then I'll be all *happy* dancing, which, for that vision alone, is worth the price of admission.

There is mounting evidence that, while impersonating a certain moribundity, my creative bits ain't dead yet. I started an abstract art class this week. There was an actual live, nude model. Even more, the artist teaching the class actually liked my interpretation of California Expressionism. Go figure.

I'm having trouble with "chunky" paired with "sleek" here. :D

Wow, you go, crank up that creativity!

How cool to be taking an abstract art class! Classes of any kind seem to shake up my brain cells and get my creativity flowing in a different way. Have a wonderful time exploring color, shape, and texture -- which all move nicely into knitting, too!

LOL - can't wait to see which of those you'll make! And you go, girl - art class! I'm delighted for you (especially with the live nude - *wink*)

I'll have to check out this issue -- I haven't seen it yet.

Any chance we'll get to see your paintings?
