September Sunshine Round Up

Pale Blossoms - 6"x 8"x 1.5"
I had some fun with the bright autumn sunshine coming through the studio window this morning and caught up on cataloguing my latest pieces at the same time.

These are all done on the birch wood raised panels, which gives them a rustic, organic quality that I just love.

Vibrant Blossoms - 8"x 8"x 1.5"
Isn't the texture amazing? These pieces are done in Peruvian Highland Wool, which has a very subtle sheen and sharp definition.

Blossom Shower - 8"x 6" x 1.5"
You might notice a theme in subject matter here. Cherry blossoms are a favourite subject of mine. There is so much hope and promise in a fruit blossom, especially after a bleak winter. Themes of radiance and vibrance also keep coming back. The linear nature of the yarn creates a visible aura around the blossoms and you can almost see the petals tremble in the sunshine.

Abstract Thinking - 8"x 6"x 1.5"
After three blossom pieces, I needed to break out and play a little. Abstract Thinking is the result of an intuitive process, just letting the piece develop on it's own.

Next up is Vogue Knitting Live. I have finished the piece for the event and I'm pretty excited about it.  You'll hear more about it soon!
