Today's crafternoon consisted of me finishing one scarf for the shop and beginning another. I have some really interesting dye ideas for the second one.

The idea for the second scarf is a dip/drip dye job. I plan to saturate the ends with fabric dye and then hand it so the color will soak down. With any luck I'll have an ombre effect that fades to the original white... we'll see. I'm kinda excited about this plan. There will definitely be photos of the progress.

In other artsy news, my lovely boyfriend has finished part one of his painting for his brother. He decided to do a grid gradient background and then paint the images on top of it. So he finished the last few squares last night. It looks really cool. I kinda want him to paint me one... or maybe two to hang by my bed... (psst... hint hint wink wink LMR). Anywho, here is a progress shot of his painting.
Let's see... Roommate has been working on a cowl and it's turning out really nicely. She's using a beautiful wine/burgundy color yarn & it's super soft. Here's a pic I snatched from her instagram.
I'm going to call the pattern a modified granny stripe. She said she started doing the regular granny stripe, but felt the spaces were too big, so she altered it. Gotta love crafty people taking on the spirit of Tim Gunn and makin' it work.
I think that's all for this week's crafternoon session. I'm going to get back to working on scarf #2. I have some other sewing projects in mind for these upcoming days, and I need to get on planning the yarn bombing outing. There's lots to do here at Apt203 ^.^ Peace.
PS. This is how much my dogs care about my crafting...
Clearly, what I thought was a quilt-top layout plan, was actually a doggy wrestling ring. Who am I to say different?? lol.
