I’m an Artist!

Casting on!

Casting on!

I’m so excited to be participating in the Wayne County Foundation’s Women’s Fund Luncheon this year – as an artist!

For those of you who are not familiar with this event, let me shed some light. The Women’s Fund is a group of women under the umbrella of our local foundation who raise money for the purpose of awarding mini grants to women’s groups in the area.

They host a luncheon in the spring that includes a silent auction for items created by local artists. This year, I will be submitting a knitted lace shawl.

I thought it might be interesting to blog about the making of this shawl. Hopefully I can inspire one of you to get involved in your community.

The name of my shawl is “I knit. That’s what I do.” If you have been reading my blog for a while, you may remember a blog post that I wrote about why I knit. That blog post is my inspiration for this shawl. You can read it here.

The shawl is a rectangular stole-type wrap knit from a hand-dyed lace weight merino wool/silk blend in an ice blue. At the center of each leaf will be a tiny bead, clear with a silver center.

The event is March 1. Stay tuned for periodic updates.
