An ever so brief introduction to the blog. This personal blog space has been around in one form or another since 2010. It focuses on making, creativity, and clothing. Thank you for being here with me. - xo, Holly

maybe, possibly, hopefully, the last of the shawl geometry shawl shape swatches

Each Wednesday, I post a snapshot of the projects I’m working on, and where my brain is at.

I’m very, very, very tempted to say the last of the Shawl Geometry swatches have been blocked. But I know that every time I’ve said that before, I end up with more swatches to block.

So, I’ve hopefully blocked the last swatches, but there may be one or two final, final ones.

Next it’s graphics, and photos, then more edits, then technical edits, and then more edits, then the second round of technical edits, then proofing edits, and final edits. Whew.

I have to admit, if I had know this project would have taken over a year, I don’t think I ever would have started it.

shawl shape swatches and a messy desk

Each Wednesday, I post a snapshot of the projects I’m working on, and where my brain is at.

messy desk and shawl shape swatches

Swatches and flowers and glasses oh my!

When I was taking this photo of my desk in it’s currently full state, I completely missed the fact that there’s actually two piles of swatches. The first being the knit shawl shape swatches, for the update of the third book in the Shawl Geometry Series. And the second being the pile of fabric swatches over on the right hand side, which are actually for a dance piece that I’m building things for.

But this has been the state of my desk for awhile now – piles of project pieces accumulating all over the place.

Maybe in between blocking Shawl Geometry swatches, I’ll clean off my desk this week.
