January's Inspiration - Caravaggio

If you keep up to my blog, you would know already that I visited the Art Institute of Chicago recently. While on my trip there, I had the good fortune to see several different art pieces that were truly gorgeous and for this month of the club, I decided to draw on a piece from the artist who was having a special exhibit at the Institute while I was there. This piece is entitled Narcissus and I love looking at Caravaggio's version compared to Salvador Dali's. Same premise but such a different take.

Here's one shot I got of Carvaggio's work while at the Institute:

Happy New Year everyone!

December's "Spoiler"

I really enjoyed painting this one for everyone! I hope you enjoy knitting with it too! The colourway is called Broken Dreams and is painted on 100% superwash merino with a nice, tight twist.

December's "Teaser"

I had a lot of fun dyeing this one and to achieve a certain effect, I used a slightly different method for dyeing these. I hope you enjoy the yarns as much as I enjoyed dyeing them. It's always fun to see them finished as I never quite know how my vision will translate onto the yarn.

All yarns mailed today...happy holidays everyone!
