Painting Update and a Winner

Monday, February 9th, 2015


I love how my drop cloth is looking. I think I will need to turn this into something really cool when I am done. Since my last post, I have painted blues and orange/earth tones.



I love the blues, but I really love the earth tones. I am so happy with it. I hope when it dries, it looks as good. I have gotten into a rhythm of painting 6 ft of silk, letting it dry over night, painting a small test piece for the next color way and then going back the next day and painting another large piece. I just have yellows and purples to go.

I am making progress on Clay’s cowl. I have about 20 rows to go and they get shorter as I go as I am knitting the wedge and every other row gets reduced by 5 stitches. I love the texture that comes from the garter stitch cables.



Now, for the winner:

Thanks to all of you who left me such nice comments. The random number generator selected 13 which means Kay Taylor is the winner of my little Aspen piece. E-mail me your snail mail address at gerrie@gericondesigns.com.
