Just thought I'd mention again:

I have a FREE or Pay What You Want .pdf copy of my Snowflakes Colouring Book available here:

:gumroad: gumroad.com/l/hTdbD

They're easy to print out and colour to your heart's content!

Two sketches from the last two months. Β―\_(ツ)_/Β― Still trying to get back into it. <3

[These hardly seem worth tagging, but ah well, there ya' go!]

Hey, folks! The Critical Hit Show starts in about an hour, at 8pm PST!

You'll likely love it if you enjoy improv and fantasy TTRPGs like D&D! They've been putting on this show in person for 9(!!) years at the Rio Theatre here in Vancouver, but you can see it for free on Twitch tonight as they stream it live from their homes!

Tune in here: twitch.tv/ericfell

Also also, this is the first real downpour we've had for *months*.

It feels so nice. 😭

Also, the house sparrows have found my bird feeder! :D The chickadees still won't touch it, but I'm glad the sparrows like it.

The chickadees still go nuts for the black oil sunflower seeds in my tray feeder, so at least they have something. ^^

I've got mushrooms growing in my little fern/moss garden! :D

I have no idea if mushrooms are good for the plants, but they're isolated to this one planter for now and the make me so happy to see, so whatever. X)

I knit a toe!! :da_la: Using German Short Rows no less!! I'm so excited, this is the first 3D thing I've ever made, here's hoping I don't screw it up from here. X) :knitting:

Both soles finished!! Just have to wait for my new crochet hooks to arrive... Arrrrrggghhh, why does international shipping have to take so long 😀

:knitting: :ball_of_yarn: :needle:

Show thread

It's looking much better this time! And even more amazing: all the numbers match up with the pattern! Huzzah! :da_w00t:

Unfortunately, I can't find my one crochet hook in the right size to continue the border, so I'll have to wait until my next order comes in. X) I'm looking forward to working more on these slippers! 😁

Maybe I can work on the sole of the other slipper in the mean time... :da_plot: :knitting:

Show thread

Gonna have to frog it and start again. X) I ran into some trouble on the sole and had to backtrack a couple rows, but I must've messed that up too (in addition to screwing up the double knit fabric somehow). The number of rows/stitches I should have don't match up to the pattern. :(

Time to start again! πŸ˜­πŸ˜€πŸ˜… :ball_of_yarn:

Show thread

I've never knit anything this complicated before; I've already had to frog it six times. I seem to be on a good kick with it this time around, though!

It's also my first time doing a double knit fabric stitch (newstitchaday.com/double-knit-), which is interesting! I like how thick and sponge-y it is. Such a nice, comfy texture. ^^

Show thread

Getting started on a new knitting project…

We'll see how far I get on this one. X) It's the Modern Mocs pattern from BekahKnits.com (bekahknits.com/modern-mocs.htm) with KnitPick's Wool of the Andes bulky yarn.

:knitting:

Anyway, the Mission Folk Music Festival is one of the most important and formative recurring events in my life. I love it so much. And as we sit here listening to the music, online for the second year in a row instead of out there at the park, I remember how thankful I am to have it in my life.

Feel free to tune in and listen tomorrow and Sunday if you like: missionfolkmusicfestival.ca/

You can watch online for free! ^^ (But do donate if you can! <3)

Me: *hasn't touched her knitting supplies for months now*

Also me: *places another KnitPicks order*

:ohno: :knitting:

Anyway, both of these artworks gave me a lot of confidence at the time. The thought that I could sit down and just… create something like these was so amazing to me. And they weren't just pencil scribbles, they had form, light, colour, and 3-dimensions. It felt so good to be able to make something like them.

Anyway. I'm *still* proud of them. Thanks for making them, 16-year old me. πŸ₯°

2) "To Escape the Rain": This was a (rather moody) painting of my character, Creature. This was another full-fledged "painting" I made in 2005, and I thought the idea was so deep… that one could dive under the water to escape the rain. πŸ˜…

Still, I love Creature, and even though this was rather simple, it turned out just how I wanted it, with the light coming from below, the composition, the bubbles, the water droplets on the surface of the water… I was so proud of myself. πŸ₯°
