When I haven't been around here for a bit you can most likely guess by now that there has been some demanding stuff going on PhD wise. I was told by my lovely hairdresser today to update the blog (ta S xx), so here I am! Our graduate research conference was weekend before last and I spent all of last week in recovery mode. It took some serious wrangling in the last month or so to get ready to present my work, but the most interesting thing I got up to was making a sampler constructed out of this stuff...
Anyone for box chain?!
I will show what I made...just haven't got around to photographing it yet, but as a teaser, I will tell you that it is all about revisiting my making skills from my previous incarnation as a fetish wear designer!
Part of my post GRC recovery was spent on sock knitting...my feet have been so freezing during this very chilly wintery season that I decided to use some of my sock yarn stash to actually make socks rather than the usual baby cardi's.
This is the first time I've attempted sock knitting...so far so good, I'm nearly up to the heel shaping.
Other stuff...the lovely drawing salon semester finished last night...I'll get around to showing some more drawings soon...and the magnificent Ms Rehe is going on a drawing adventure to New York, so do stop by Patsyfox in the coming weeks to see what she is up to.
Not much happening garden wise...some winter planting and planning for hopefully a better warm season in a few months...I did pick some carrots yesterday...they were yum :o)
