printmaking 101

Oh heck, I am so funny with these titles, har har……….. Let’s get going! I mentioned a week ago that I wanted to make more, create more – be more creative, etc. So here it is, my first attempt at potato stamps – and a first DIY on the blog!

Oh noes! Only one exam left, and I’m already with my head in the clouds. My new Holga 135 arrived in the mail today, aaaaand I’ve already started knitting a scarf for this winter. If it was possible to get a medal for procratinating… I should’ve gotten it by now I guess.

The idea for this scarf with Rowan wool is from Park and Cube, you might remember if you’ve been following her blog (here!). I loved the texture of Rowan’s big wool, and after finding it in a local store, decided to give it a go. I am ridiculously slow at knitting, and even this easy ribbing stitch: knit, yarn over, purl, knit, yarn over, purl, etc is so confusing at times! Hereby, I highly respect those who dare knitting clothes… or socks… or gloves. – Hopefully I can finish before Christmas… Are you all aware it’s only 7 Fridays to go?!
