Drawing with yarn!

 Working on a crochet blanket, in the style called mosaic crochet. This is a CAL (crochet-a-long) by Tinna Thorudottir Thorvaldar. For more info, search on youtube. ;) 

I call it drawing with yarn, as you follow the chart a pattern emerges row by row. I am more interested in crocheting than drawing this year.

Behind the mask...

 Yep, scales of rust.

the internet was not working in the a.m. so I drew this. Just allowed it to happen slowly, with no actual plan. sketchbook, graphite, microns. it was pleasant fun. the router seems to be resetting again now...

Since Covid, Crochet.

 So, time available, I learned to crochet. So many patterns! So much yarn! So wonderfully distracting from the political, environmental and medical storms raging in the US and globally. 

I made these dishtowels from a pattern by "Creative Grandma" on youtube. She is a patient and skillful teacher, thanks, Glenda! I used cotton yarn "Lily Sugar and Cream" and used my phone for the photo.

Yep, youtube is a great place to learn new skills!

inktober reminded me i do like to draw, so i got a drawing table and chair, and used them today.
it was fun. 😀 
might be called zentangle inspired art as a mandala.
