I then devoted the earlier part of this week to teaching a class on Illuminated Manuscripts, a totally fascinating and very inspiring topic. I absolutely adore the history of art and could spend hours just researching around my given subject for the month.
Last night I finally got back to knitting.
I'm fiddling around a bit right now, creating a matinee jacket, which was one of the first items I ever knitted. I've not made that many in recent years so it's quite interesting to go back to creating something so small and beautiful. I'm using an acrylic yarn from my stash, because baby items really need to be easy to wash and dry and I'm just making it up as I go along. It's proving quite interesting with it's delicate openwork, artistic in fact!
