What's your current crafting WIP?

Hello fellow crafters!

What are you currently working on?

Share photos, link to a pattern/instructions or your currently making page on Ravelry (or any similar crafting site)! Or just update us with what it is and how it's going.

What are you currently working on?

I am currently knitting this shawl because I hate myself enough to keep on trying to knit shawls.

Just kidding. Seriously, it's beautiful, and it's going to look great when it's done, but it is taking...so...long. I'm a slow knitter and I feel like I'll be 87 by the time this thing is finished. (Crochet shawls? I can finish a huge one in a few days. So much faster for me.)

And yes, it's called a "kerchief" but you can make it bigger to make it a shawl and as it's a gift for someone and I want to give them a shawl....sigh.

I was given a knitting loom and apparently according to a friend who knits the regular way (and can do really complicated looking stuff involving spreadsheets, virtually!) it's way quicker.  You can increase and decrease as you go (I feel like there's proper terminology for that which I can't currently remember...) but not sure whether you can do really, really complex stuff.  As for me, it's still just scarves (the long straight kind) and squares for a patchwork blanket (mainly it's something to do which helps prevent restless legs from setting in whilst having to sit still for whatever reason, e.g. long journeys).

I like the look of your project, a lot.

Pictures may follow eventually if I can produce reasonable quality ones.

What are you currently working on?

I recently became fascinated by marquetry, and my first project (a tea box) is on my desk, waiting for me to cut out the pieces. Lately I've been distracted by messing around with aquarelle pencils though.

Been doing a lot of wood-block carving and printing lately.
"The worshippers of the gods go to them; to the manes go the ancestor-worshippers; to the Deities who preside over the elements go their worshippers; My devotees come to Me." ... "Whichever devotee desires to adore whatever such Deity with faith, in all such votaries I make that particular faith unshakable. Endowed with that faith, a votary performs the worship of that particular deity and obtains the fruits thereof, these being granted by Me alone." - Sri Krishna
