This is the most luscious yarn I’ve had in my hot little hands in a good while – you know the type – you just can’t keep your hands off it and keep stopping what you’re doing to pay it a quick visit to pet it for a minute. ¬†ūüėč ¬†Love me some alpaca! ¬†This is the Yarnbox December selection and it’s HUGE — 600 yards! ¬†Maybe I’ll knit a cowl… or a scarf… or a small wrappy thing… or maybe I’ll just admire it and pet it every now and then…

OUT OF THE KILN

Here’s one of the things that I love about pottery glazes: they’re always a little unpredictable. ¬†Something that I feel like I totally messed up at the glazing table can knock my socks off when it’s finished firing. ¬†Here’s an example:

FYI

Dillo White Clay

Rutile Blue total dip with Glossy White drips on rim and inside

Thrown at Arkansas Art Center Pottery Studio

I intended to just drip Glossy  White on the rim over a total dip of Rutile Blue, but I got in a hurry, was way heavy handed with the drips and was too lazy to scrub and start over.   I think it turned out to be a pretty pot in spite of my impatience.

I’m obsessed. ¬†The only reason I’m blogging now instead of reading is because I read my Nook’s battery flat and it’s recharging and I audiobooked my phone’s battery flat and it’s also on the charger. ¬†What can I say? ¬†I’m obsessed and I’m thinking I need an octopus to round out the family. ¬†Seriously.

I’m going to run the Flash Your Finishes Friday link up on a week to week basis until I’ve decided what I want to do. ¬†So, this week it’s on.

Pay them a visit, drool over the posts and above all, have fun!
¬†Talent without discipline is like an octopus on roller skates. ¬†There’s plenty of movement, but you never know if it’s going¬†to be backward, forward or sideways. ¬†H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
