Part of a baby blanket I’m making for my brother’s forthcoming boy.

I started knitting this on Tuesday and then remembered that "Blanket" is the current theme for Illustration Friday, and I thought, "Hey! I should draw it!" Originally I imagined doing a super-macro drawing of just a couple of stitches, but I started too small, and grew crosseyed and bored very quickly, so I gave up and went for evocative abstraction.

I subscribe to an art instruction newsletter www.artacademy.com.  This week’s tutorial was about drawing drapery–“pipe” folds this time.  So I pinned a cloth to the wall and spent way too much time trying to figure it out.  (You can get lost in all the #$%!!# folds!) So here’s the result, looking pretty much like Art 101.

I couldn’t decide to draw today or build an Ark. The weather was, and still is, wet and windy.  Obviously, I decided to stay dry. (prismacolor and 4b pencil)

My friend Melissa brought this from Japan for me. It’s made from a single large square scarf:


I’ve been keeping my camera in it lately, since I don’t have a real camera bag that’s big enough. (I recently upgraded to a camera with a zoom lens.)

  3. Quasi Quilt (not entirely an Op Art conceit; 2-D representation of a quilt top I originally designed on graph paper, then sewed and hung up over my study window a few years ago).
  4. Sharpener. I was feeling pretty happy about this until my crosshatched shadow turned into a spiderweb.

Um, can anybody help me rotate the last two images? [Done. —IA]
