This will be the first big project I’ve worked on since we’ve moved and I’m so excited! It’s the Larch Cardigan by Amy Christoffers. I’m going to knit it up in Knit Picks’ Stroll Sport in Mustard. I’m just waiting on the yarn from the warehouse to get stitchin’!
Since I bought all those block printing supplies I keep seeing things that would make great prints! What am I going to do!? Oh, that’s right, I’ll make tons and tons of blocks!
I’m rather fond of this teal llama-deer. I just wish I could figure out how to make the prints come out as solid as this one did! They’re awfully spotty for some reason…
I found this tutorial over at JezzePrints (which is a wonderful little blog) called No-Fuss Printing. Basically you cut the stencil out of transparency paper and then squeegie the fabric paint over the stencil with something small and stiff like a credit card. So easy! So I practiced on a bunny (of course). I love the idea, so I think I’ll have a go at some more once I can think of something neat to draw. Any suggestions? Inspiration?
