Yarn Box

This semester I am taking a painting class. For the second project I had researched artist Lydia Gifford and applied three of her themes to my piece. This included monochromatic materials, try
layering and challenging traditional methods of painting in combination with sculptural aspects. Here I was able to reverse my artistic practice, which is usually deconstructing painting through colour, to the use of paint with very tactile materials.
I have many many, Sildenafil
many things. I am grateful to be able to take a cab tomorrow morning. I want to be early, like get there for 7am, so I can put rust on my shirts, because that needs to be done. Even though I have many things I feel like nothing is 100% done and everything is sitting at a solid half doneness. I feel like this is a large project for me and that is exciting. Although, it almost got ruined when my pipes decided to leak all over the place, because, of course, I was keeping my suitcase of work right where the pipes decided to leak.

I have to give  a half hour talk on Friday for the FINA class and that is not exciting. Mainly my talk will be about bricolage and how I use it in wearable artworks. I dont like talking very much, especially public talking in front of a group of people. I think I will bring up artists like Nick Cave and the fellow that bricolages golf bags (I’ll have to look him up again when I get home from work), and anyone else I can think of.

This year for Christmas one of my favourite gifts my mom gave to me was a three month subscription to a company called Yarn Box.

They have four different subscriptions you can choose from:

Yarn Box Socks which is the cheapest subscription, recipe you usually get enough wool to knit a pair of socks this also includes a pattern.

Yarn Box Classic which is what I have been getting. My first project I got enough wool to knit a shawl and my second project was a knit plush kitten toy pattern. They also give crochet patterns with this subscription.

Yarn Box Luxe is a seasonal subscription so only 4 a year. You get a lot of wool in this package its one of the most expensive ones but you get really interesting fibres. This also includes a pattern.

And the last one is called Yarn Box Art Yarns this one is also seasonal and more expensive but you get a lot of wool and really interesting fibres.

Im really happy with what I have been getting I would recommend this to anyone who likes to knit or crochet. There is usually up to 5 different color-ways for each month and they are all usually pretty nice. When you sign up you get to customize what colours and yarn weights you like so they can try and match up the best yarn for you.
