A Little R & R

Rest, relaxation and a little pain too. Yeah, I needed to get more ink from Mr. Ed. I love his dragonfly’s and always wanted to get one. I had a few ideas but as usual I let Mr. Ed use his imagination to give me this exquisite piece. I also wanted to add a bee to my wisteria, isn’t he sweet? I love the way he does the shading on the dragonfly and leaf, it makes it look as if it’s just hovering and he tied it in nicely to the wisteria but gave it enough of a difference in look and color to make it stand out on it’s own.

I have off of work until Thursday of course I’m being pretty lazy so far. I do however need to get my butt in gear to make some more goodies for my Etsy shop. I think I’ll probably get started on that tomorrow.

As for knitting, Friday was another fun filled night with the HYAW knitters. Of course we stopped in at Amici’s for cocktails. I worked a little bit on my red cable sock. It’s coming along nicely. It’s about the only one of my wip’s that is coming along at all. I haven’t touched the other two. I think I am just in a funk. I need the weather to change or something. If you can believe it we had snow flurries this morning!! You can tell it’s been a while since I’ve been out in the sun, look at that blue white turkey leg! Yeesh!

Another thing that’s been taking up some of my knitting time is my obsession with the Democratic primaries. I really wish this extended pissing match would come to an end so that we can focus on the real issues as a country. This is just more of the same, “lets create a division” politics that I think a lot of us are really sick of.

Everyone have a great week, by the way, I’ll be sleeping in while your’re working. 😉

  1. Awesome Tat. I really like the shadow work. I have in mind a tat that I would really consider getting. The problem is … where to put it. Have fun sleeping in, Stinker!!!

  2. That dragonfly is INCREDIBLE! Love the colors! Your sock looks great too. Sorry I missed you guys at HYAW. I was seeing the Yarn Harlot but I hope to make it next month. It always sounds like so much fun. 🙂

  3. Wow, that dragonfly looks real, even has a shadow!! Nice bee too!!I like the cabled sock, very crisp and clear pattern.Here, we are having unseasonally warm weather, well that’s after our cyclonic winds a week or so ago!!! We hear lots about the Democratic contest here: Kevin 07 met or talked to all the Predidential front runners last week.

  5. Beautiful tattoos! I’ve wanted to get one for years but am so scared of needles that I don’t think I can ever go through with it.Socks look great. Have a great week!

  6. YOur new ink is GORGEOUS! The shading is going to look sweet when it heals and softens up a little. The bee is really cute 🙂 Love the Wysteria and the dragonfly wings are exquisite! I bet they’re WOW in person. Great work!!!!!
