I’ll admit, I gave myself a lot of free passes to skip days on the last week of this project.
Day Twenty-One: Crafting Accompaniments
Day Twenty-Three: Inspiration From Clothes
Day Twenty-Four: Up Close
Day Twenty-Six: Organization
Day Twenty-Seven: The Wrong Side
Day Twenty-Eight: Simplicity
Day Twenty-Nine: Crafting Companion
Wordless for now, I’m hoping to do a full round-up post over the weekend, and maybe have some knitting done to show you.
I’ve been taking a photo a day as part of the Month of Craft Photos project.
Day Seventeen: Last FO You Used
This is my Idlewood, the way it usually looks just after I’ve finished wearing it – inside-out. I wore it to school that day, and the weather was just right for it.
Day Eighteen: Craft Books
My craft book collection has slowly expanded to two shelves, and this is what I keep on the top one.
Day Twenty: Finishing
I realize that, in a fit of enthusiasm/intentional forgetfulness, I managed to skip both Day Sixteen and Day Nineteen. I’ll have to go back and do one of them before the end of the month.
When I saw the prompt for “finishing,” the first thing that came to mind was this sweater. I have had a lovely, relaxing long weekend, and spent a lot of it working away on the sleeves, but I’m in the oh-god-I-want-this-done phase of knitting, right now.
It’s a much more photogenic knit with sleeves on, and looks a lot more like a real sweater!
Day Fourteen: Where You Craft
I am so, so tempted to pretend that I am one of those people who has a clean house, and is organized, and always crafts in a sweetly-decorated, clutter-free space, like this.
Unfortunately, some of you have actually been to my apartment, where it’s totally obvious that the place I really craft is here.
Before you ask/sorry mom, my desk is always that messy. Usually the project to the left of the computer is knitting; the day I took my photos I was working on embroidery transfers instead.
I tend to craft next to my computer both because I’m a huge nerd, and also because I love to watch movies and TV, especially while I knit (currently on rotation: Warehouse 13, The New Girl, and Xena), and my desktop serves as my television and DVD player most of the time.
I actually really love this photo prompt – I think “where you craft” is a really interesting question to ask people, and I’d be curious to know what the answer is for a lot of my friends.
Day Fifteen: A New Skill
I’ve been looking for a way to take up embroidery for a while, now, and while I was traveling, I stopped in at a craft shop and found exactly what I needed to get excited about it: days-of-the-week iron-on transfers.
I bought the transfers and fabric to sew my own tea towels, because clearly it is very, very important that I have one for every day of the week, with a jolly squirrel doing chores on it.
