Art Swap

A student at my school made a really cool scratchboard in art class.

It’s approximately 8 by 10 inches. Here’s a close-up of the peacock’s face:

I loved it immediately and offered a barter! I knit her this scarf in order to trade. Here is Madison modeling. Her hair is orange now, but I swear it has been every color in that scarf this school year!

The chunky yarn is Ironstone Fun, and the skinny stuff is Shibui Silk Cloud that I got at a new local shop Blazing Needles.

Look at the little snowflake!!

Hooray for barter! I’m thrilled to hang this fancy peacock on my wall!

    That art is AMAZING! No wonder you wanted to make her a scarf. Did she laugh when you told her you needed a photo for your blog? ~_^
