Hundertwasser socks and a bit more gocco printing

I haven’t had much knitting on the pages of this blog for a while.  It seems to be the winter when I do most of it, because of the long dark evenings when the light isn’t good enough for getting the colours right to create something with fabrics or paint.

This time I made another pair of socks out of some gorgeous Hundertwasser sock yarn by Opal which I bought in Abergavenny market a while ago.  Here they are in their colourful glory!

I’m looking forward to wearing them through the cold weather….

I’ve also been doing some more Gocco printing this week, using a couple of screens I made to test some of the machines I’ve been selling.  This one is a crow which I drew using the Gocco pen and doodled inside to fill in the pattern of his feathers.  It is a small one which I’ve printed on lots of little cards and a few Moleskine notebooks.

I also printed one on this previously painted newspaper:

I’ve also stamped this at the bottom with a wall-shaped print block that I made from fun foam (great for making print blocks!). 

Today I printed an image of a cottage in the grounds of the slate mine we visited in North Wales in the summer but that will be the subject of my next post…

    I am just learning socks after knitting about everything else over the years. They are a lot of fun and quite a bit faster than a sweater. Yours are lovely.
