WARNING: LONG AND PHOTO HEAVY POST AHEAD.
Given that it's the end of the semester, I really wanted to take the time to look back at this last semester and discuss all the amazing things I've accomplished, both in school, knitting and my friends.
August started out with me and my friends hitting up a concert in Kansas City by the greatest band ever, Train! It was soo much fun and the perfect way to ring in a great year with great friends.
September arrived and school started to pick up. And with school picking up, who doesn't need a de-stresser in the form of a camping trip! Me and my friends decided to just take a weekend away from Manhattan and explore Milford Lake. It was such a great experience.
On the knitting front, I was able to finish a pair of socks, a pink hat, and my kitty ears; all despite the ever burdening amount of school work!
And art wise, I began exploring ink washes and mark making in response to my trees for my drawing class.
And my first knitted still life!
October meant my 22nd birthday and Halloween, 2 things I always look forward to celebrating with my amazing friends (seeing a trend here, I LOVE my friends!)
The crafty-ness continued as well, with my wrist warmers and hat set, as well as a self-portrait of myself knitting!
I also started my jogging-box drawing series, something I was super excited about.
As November entered, the workload got even more intense and my life got even more stressful. Like you haven't all heard that before though haha. I was still able to have fun with my art friends in KC at First Fridays!
And don't forget the craft shows we worked for Relay for Life. That was a fun experience too, and a great way to get my knitting stuff out in the public.
And finally December is here! With December came Christmas parties, both with my friends and my classmates.
I haven't had the chance to finish anything this month, but I've been busily working on headbands for Relay, as well as a new project for myself.
And then there's my art, which has turned out pretty great for the end of the semester. My painting is pretty much done, just needing a bit more shadows, and my drawings are back to involving the trees.
I hope you all enjoyed seeing all the amazing things I've done this semester. I feel like I posted this more for myself than anything else, but I still love sharing all this with the world. I can't wait to start another painting, and finish this one as well. As for knitting and spinning, I have some pretty exciting adventures on the horizon. I hope the spring is just as great at the fall was!
