I don’t think this week has been all that productive for me :( but I have learnt a new skill! and I have made a few bits and pieces in the workshops.
Firstly, Shelia gave me knitting lessons today :) She taught me plain and purl stitch, how to cast on and off and I’m just about to sit in front of the t.v. and have a wee knitting sesh!
Here’s a video of Shelia going over the plain stitch:
And a picture of my first wee sample:
Thank you Shelia! :D
Here are a few pictures of the other bits and pieces I’ve done in the workshops over the last week:
I was playing around with coiling, I don’t know why I find wrapping wire around a steel rod with an electric drill so fun but I really do :P this piece was just me thinking of someway to join together a few coils. The lighter blue coil is really springy and fun to bounce up and down and led me to the question: “do you reckon this is how they make slinkys?”
After cutting the shapes out of the metal, I heated and bent the leaves into more natural curved forms. I only managed to make two leaves but plan to make a few more and try and construct them in some way to best represent my initial drawing.
And now to the knitting………
