I always have a penchant for stranded colourwork and Bo Rabbit appealed to me the most. So I ended up sketching a Bo Rabbit to try out a different colour combination. Here's my "Bo in Blue":
It would have been better if I'd used my sketchbook but it helped me make a decision. So here's the yarn I bought to make him.
However, the side effect of the sketch was, I really wanted to draw again. Some of my friends had been pinning some "Zentangle" designs that caught my eye.
So a fair amount of research and many hours later. Here are the results.
Luckily, I happened to have the right sort of pens and pencils to do it without buying anything. The website and the newsletters are quite informative. I found this site was quite good for more design ideas - TanglePatterns. The designs look incredibly complicated but the method behind it is broken down that even someone who believes they have no artistic leanings would be able to produce a zentangle.
I ended up making a sampler page to try out the different designs I found and so I could use it as a reference too.
I've not quite finished with it. I keep adding more and filling in the gaps - so it's a work in progress.
Anyway, back to the knitting.
