I'm still attending church from home so yesterday I had plenty of time to sit and knit
and even do some painting after lunch.
I found a new-to-me artist on YouTube, Louise De Masi .
She lives in Australia so her accent is a nice bonus
and watching her videos all the way to the end means you get to laugh with her as she includes her bloopers and it is a good way to end!
This is inspired from one of her tutorials which I watched several times before I drew and painted it
trying out the new ideas and suggestions she outlined.
I also played around with my signature and read on the 'proper' way to sign (bottom right)
and not to sign like a doctor because no one will know who the artist is!
I then signed all of the postcards I have done and even all of the pages in my journal.
Now all I need is to knit is a beret! lol

The Christmas striped socks are finished without any more drama, I'm glad to say!
As soon as I get some measurements,
I will be making some little girl sizes to go with this pair for mom.
I was glad to see an order of sock yarn delivered recently.
I wanted to try the new yarn called Static; a 75/25 wool yarn.
It is thinner than the Stroll I usually use but that is not a criticism--it is a really nice yarn!
