Charley Harper

This is my new obsession!!! Just discovered the work of this modernist artist and I absolutely love it!!!
The illustration and posters are beautiful and are made with a very refreshing sense of humor.

You can find more information about Charley Harper here and see/purchase some of his work at charleyharperartstudio.com.

The site is run by his family and they have products for every budget (the cards on the picture were $2 each).

My first knitting project

I just finished my first knitting project! I am so excited!!!

It is a little uneven since I was trying both english and continental knitting. As of now I think I like continental better (maybe because I learned crochet before, when I was younger?).

Anyway, to all my friends who are knitting I would love to see what you've been making.

I'm so excited!!!
