I should really be knitting...
Stariel finished a pair of Whitbys from Knitting On The Road. I love this pattern so much! She is a sockapaltwoza sock savior, so she's sending these off to somebody very lucky.
Check out Carry's awesome camo-colored Jaywalkers. What is that yarn? I am in love with it!!!
Jenn finished up a lovely pink pair of Koigu Jaywalkers.
All right, is this the Jaywalker knit-along, or what? You people are obsessed!
I am still waffling as to whether or not I'm going to try to do the Knitting Olympics. I really, really, really want to, especially since it has become such a big thing (check out this article, which was the front page of the Oregonian's Living section yesterday...). I think I'm going to cast on tomorrow night and see how quickly it knits up. I know that it's supposed to be a challenge to finish it in 16 days, but with all my other knitting, not to mention my two night classes, I think it will be even if it knits up fast. I guess I could change my entry to be the Knitter's sample, but that's not much fun since I can't post any progress pics. Sigh.
I had my second Fashion Illustration class last night. We rounded out our croquis and made another one that was 8-heads tall (as opposed to the freakishly long-legged 9-head croquis I showed you last week). We also sketched fashion faces. It's so cool to be able to draw by formula. It makes my drawings look a lot less freakish.
The one on the left has the weird face showing through because that's what's on the next page and the paper is kinda thin. The left one is the 8-head croquis and the right is the 9-head.
These are the "fashion faces". Again, the guy is showing through the drawing of the woman, so you'll have to try to ignore the weird ghostly face there. They're kinda cheesy, but at least they don't look too deformed. When I was drawing the guy, I felt like one of those police sketchers who draw the pictures of the suspects... Doesn't that guy look kinda like a car thief or purse snatcher? Bill will appreciate that "soap actor chin".
