No rest for the painter or the knitter

Despite being sick last week, I did do some painting and knitting (most of the knitting was on the weekend).
I did this one just for fun!
I am knitting a vest with the Jane Thornley knit-a-long on Ravelry - I found this necklace that I had made a long time ago - I think it will add to the Safari flavor!
The project must be finished by May 31 so I have to get busy and knit knit knit. The back which you see part of above is about half done, then I move on to the fronts, the gussets, and the finishing touches. I probably won't be able to wear it until late fall, but I think it will look very exotic with jeans or black pants and a black top.
Hope you are having a good week. I just finished the Prima BAP for April and need to photograph it - hopefully later today or tomorrow.  See you soon!

Love the paintings, Chris! The olives pairing would make a cute gift with a set of martini glasses!

Glad you're feeling better. Not fun. :-(

Hope you had a nice Easter!

It's beautiful Chris - I like the olives, there's something 'free' to that painting! Your vest is turning out lovely! I can see you wearing it... Don't forget to rest and relax Chris! Take care of your health! Enjoy the week!
