the girl






She is a year and a half now, my little girl. She is as adorable and beautiful as she looks. But her birth almost took me away from this world. I thought I had recovered from it, or that I would shortly, but now I'm not so sure. We did the drawing together. I scribbled along, without really thinking of what I was drawing. And then came these faces and this little girl. As a girl, I used to draw a lot. And what I mostly drew was; girls. I liked this one on the right, she looks a little apprehensive and timid, but curious too - waiting for what will come next. So I copied her and put her in my blog. She represents something of what I feel myself these days.

Your daughter is so beautiful and expressive! I also love her sweater (what is it??).
Drawings can be so revealing, can't they?

Thank you Eliza! The sweater is an adaption/ simplification of a Elizabeth Zimmermann baby baby sweater. It's a super pattern, you can find it in the book Knitters almanac (or maybe as a pdf file on the web?)

You're such a creative girl, and I'm glad you did recover, if not completely. Take care, and enjoy your printing, drawing, knitting and that adorable little daughter!

Litt av et uttrykk på henne, hun er veldig fin. Jeg liker også godt uttrykket på din nye cover-girl!

Hun er så nydelig.
Det tar tid å leges, vet du - både fysisk og psykisk.
Tegningene dine kvalifiserer til trykk! Jeg er så imponert. Ha en fin søndag. Gleder meg til å høre mer om flytteplaner.
