poppies (not puppies)

last night i began an uncharacteristic painting. i wanted to try something different. quick. not so detailed. in other words, the opposite of what i normally do. this morning i put a few finishing touches on it, but for the most part it was done in a little under two hours last night. i'm not usually into flowers, but hey, everyone has to paint them at least once. so now i'm all set with the obligatory flower painting. maybe it isn't spectacular, but yay for the instant gratification!

jester hat

these week was hat week. i finished the jayne cobb hat and since it was so quick and easy, i decided to knit myself one too. i made up a pattern for something jester-ish and knit away. it's knit in malabrigo merino chunky, a little less than one skein, on 10.5 needles. my youngest decided to model it for me.
