I have 2 things to show you today:
First, #1 had his first painting lessons last week. We decided on eggplants, because they are simple forms and have beautiful color, and we had just bought them at the farmer's market that morning.
I think he did a great job. We both had a canvas and I would paint on mine, with him watching. Then he would paint on his. These are all his strokes. I helped him mix the color, but, after a while, he started mixing his own.
This is acrylic on canvas (I think it's 12 inches square).
Second: This is what I want to knit. It is from the Columbia Style Book # 108, 1946. I think it is very stylish, but I'm not sure if I would do the crochet around the belt buckle. Mostly, I just like the name. The yarn it calls for is no longer available, but it's just worsted weight wool. I may try a wool/alpaca blend. I've tried a few things from these old books and it's fun to see them come to be.
