Like everyone else on the Earth, I am reflecting on the last year and am so grateful for many things, family, work, health, and all the artistic opportunities I have received this year. Even with so many pieces I created in 2018 for exhibitions, there are a few that didn’t make any art show. And I am realizing that I have not shared here nor published the pattern. So over the next few days I will share some of these wearable art pieces. First is Lake Effect Muff inspired by our great snow that would not happen if Great Salt Lake dried up (hint, hint save the lake!).
The lake effect happens quite often in Salt Lake resulting in big snowfalls in a short amount of time. Lake Effect snow is made when cold winds move across warmer lake water. The air picks up water vapor, which then freezes and falls on the shores of the lake. It makes for great gray clouds and beautiful snow.
