Celtic cable neckwarmer

I am officially on summer vacation, but it doesn't feel like much of a vacation since I am working here 40 hours a week. I'm really happy with my summer job and thankful that I will be making some money before I leave Baltimore in July. I am also doing as much reading as possible to inform my work for thesis next year. So far the books are helping with inspiration and so is this little side knitting project I have going on.

Peace - A word study

More word studies

For the last few weeks of school I have been working on some word experiments made out of various materials. This is an idea I am experimenting with for thesis next year. I am interested in designing for the senses and this is my first step on the journey. I tired out eggshells and sewing needles as my first two attempts. Up next is my summer reading list with includes Designing Design by Kenya Hara and Brand Sense by Martin Lindstrom.
