I finished the cowl from the yarn I spun a couple of posts ago. Lovely, light and soft. No pattern, no swatch. I just cast on a likely number of stitches on a short circular needle, knit double moss stitch 'til i ran out of yarn.
I'm an artist who has been making stuff for 30 years. I used to spin, knit, weave, quilt, design, write, embroider and garden, and I still do most of these things, but for the last few years I have been focused on stitching images from Canada's first natural history, the Codex Canadensis.
I try to live a life of minimal consumption and maximum creation. More and more, I see how these are connected.
