I Made This!
This is a little show and tell project that Pip from Meet Me at Mikes! is running. To be in the running to win a copy of her fabbo book, Meet Me at Mike's we have to post something we made. As I have only recently started knitting again, it might be a bit much to expect people to want to look at the few rows I've managed to do (let's not mention the crochet) However this is a study I did at the College of Fine Arts in Sydney which inspired my first book Circle of Nine. I was just playing around but quite a few of the images began to haunt me including the myth of Persephone Rising. I began to write the images out and a entire series of books set between the world of Eronth and the Blue Mountains in Australia began to emerge. The books are based on myth and fairy tales but it was at COFA that the characters first emerged.
