more knitting

Graphite, watercolor, gouache, and image transfers on paper, 11x14".

I think this is the last sheet of this more off-white paper - not sure why it doesn't match the other pieces.  I have a maddening variety of white mats, frames, and drawings...I go to swap something out and I realize that the paper looks icky against the mat or vice versa.  If I wasn't so cheap frugal I would have a mat and frame for every piece but instead I switch them out for shows.

I've discovered that using a gridded ruler works really well for making the lines match up with each other (at least the ones I want to be parallel, anyway).  I already had one for my rotary cutter so now I use it for drawing, too.  Of course, I only have one and I'm too cheap frugal to buy a second one so it's usually in whichever spot I'm not :)

Lovely work! I think this would look excellent on a tote bag (thinking selfishly because I love tote bags for my knitting projects, ha).

thanks, Jessica! I never thought of tote bags but somebody told me once I should put my drawings on t-shirts! threadless, maybe?

and selfish thinking isn't all bad :)
