Meanwhile, back at the Studio…

This is what I did today.

printing the cornrows scarf

all done

And then this happened. The “Kidneys” design keeps trying to master me, but today, I’m a thousand steps closer to being its master. I knew this was going to be a beast to print because it was a beast to design. This as about my 3rd attempt at printing it in repeat. This time I actually slowed down painstakingly did what I you’re supposed to do. This was the result.

See anything wrong?

Not Perfect, but I’m a thousand steps closer to mastering it. I now have a pretty good understanding of how to line it up right, and I can’t wait to do it again with my new found knowledge.

if at first you don't succeed, try, try again.

    I love that cornrows scarf! You have really great designs. And I feel very confident that you are going to master those kidney shapes. In the meantime, I’m sure you can use those “seconds” to make something beautiful!

    Thanks Libby. I was thinking of using the seconds for something myself…maybe call it ‘artifacts of handprinting’ or something equally grandiose-sounding haha!
