Hiatus

Posted by 2ton Inspired on October 7, 2008

As the pregnancy is winding down (2 more months to go!) my hands are getting a little swollen and achey which means no knitting/crocheting for me. It’s kind of a bummer because now I feel so bored in the evenings. Hopefully I’ll still be able to finish some of the KIP for the baby in time.

I’ll be back when the swelling subsides and I have something new to show. Hopefully it won’t be too long a break.

Swamped with Color Theory

Posted by 2ton Inspired on May 2, 2008

The final weeks of the semester have been closing in on me and I’ve been scrambling to finish all of the assignments for my Color Theory class. It’s been interesting and I’ve learned quite a bit about how colors work together and how light and shadows affect colors. Some of these assignments are tedious and time consuming so it’s been slow on the knitting/crocheting front.

The image below is one of the assignments on how light can affect color and the way shapes are formed.

One more week to go and hopefully I can start more knitting projects. I owe a few people some things….

Express your knitting luv through candy hearts

Posted by 2ton Inspired on January 25, 2008

Completely off topic but I think this site is pretty fun and wanted to share even though I’m not terribly into celebrating Valentines day. No, I’m not jaded. Actually very happily married, just not a believer in declaring one day to show someone you love them. If you love someone you should show them that all the time already.

Anyway, back to the fun site!

We all know Valentines day is coming up when we see those little candy hearts with the sayings on them. I remember in elementary school, we made cards for our classmates and decorated shoe boxes with hearts for the cards we’d receive. Then in high school we could send our friends (or crushes!) little messages of candy hearts for a dollar.

Now we can create our own candy heart images using the….

Valentine’s Day Candy Heart Generator!

(It really is fun, despite the fact that the site uses comic sans font.) Just a note that it only makes images, not the real hearts themselves.
