WIP Wednesdays – Sketchy Scarf Knitting

20140114-203643.jpg

Here is a pretty lady, knitting the scarf she is wearing. She is stitched with a single thread of machine sewing thread in dark grey. It’s more like needle sketching than needle painting. Her scarf will be filled in with pinkish yarn to offset the black and white girl.

My sister Nora drew this a few years ago on a placemat in a terrible restaurant during a family reunion. I snapped a quick few pictures of it, complete with water rings and stains. I traced it in Inkscape to make up the pattern. Hopefully I will be finished this piece soon (I am already a bit further along than this picture). Lucky for me I have lots of trashy B movies to watch!
