I finally found my camera and uploaded a few pictures of a couple of projects I've been working on over the past while.

Knitting



My Clapotis, done in Noro Kureyon Sock yarn. The yarn's a little too rough and uneven for me to even think about using it for socks, but it works just fine for something like this.

The pattern's simple and easy to memorize, and the long colour repeats of the Noro yarn look quite attractive here.



Embroidery

I haven't touched it in a while, but I've been wanting to get back to it lately. My geisha pattern, based on an image intended for stained glass but one that works just as well for embroidery.



I traced it onto fabric with a washable blue fabric pencil, then started on the hair. Satin stitch in black cotton embroidery floss.



Doesn't look too impressive now, but with a little more time and a few more colours, it ought to end up looking pretty nifty, I think.

I'm thinking that I'll end up attaching the top and bottom of the fabric to dowels and hanging it on the wall like a scroll. I think it would suit the theme of the pattern pretty well.
