Translation Tuesday

For me, knitting is all about translation. It's about taking inspiration from an image or artwork or texture and recreating it into a textile. Recently, I was digging through some older work and it gave me the idea of Translation Tuesday. A special day to celebrate textile translations. (And perhaps also celebrate words that begin with the letter T.) AND because I'm a terrible blogger and this seemed like a fun way to at least TRY and be a bit consistent with posts. 

So here we go.  It'll be a mix of old and new work and will showcase the textile inspiration and the knitted outcome. And it'll happen (fingers crossed) every Tuesday!
