Transformation

Wondering what I’ve been doing instead of blogging?

I got the needed decisions from my next baby wrap moms and did all the time-consuming calculations to determine what exactly I needed to order. Then I got the cotton ordered for the next two warps – 26 tubes of it. I should have it by the end of the week.

Remember this?
mouse parts, small

I spent more hours than I would have guessed, more than it took to do the knitting for sure, to turn them into this:
amigurumi mice
They’re nice and small – to the tip of that blue hat is only 4″.

And how about this:

I turned it into this:
red rayon chenille scarf

I’ll be honest, this one took far more mental energy than physical energy or time. I was very hesitant, afraid I’d still hate it. As it turns out, the actual work wasn’t so bad, and I rather like the scarves. Granted, at this point I’ve only finished weaving the first and just started the second, but the actual weaving goes pretty quickly.

I’ve also been putting mental energy into what I should be weaving for my new photos for show applications for 2015. Pieces will need to be woven and photographed before I know it. And I can never assume that every idea I have, or certainly every piece I weave, is suitable for jurying. I wish I could say at this point that I knew what my next attempt for this purpose would be, but I don’t. I’m hoping an inspiration will strike…soon.

    Your omigurimi (sp?) are precious! You have waaaaay more patience than I.

    Thanks for showing them!

      I admit that I didn’t love the finishing, and I’m not particularly happy with the blue-hatted one, but once they’ve been stitched together it’s hard to take them apart so I let it go. But I did enjoy the knitting itself. It’s escapist & therapeutic…little thinking required.

      Wait till you see what I’ve got on my needles now!

    Peg, do you ever rest?..you’re always on the go…creating lovely things. I love reading about them. I can’t wait to see what’s on your needles.

      This is what comes of being more than a little obsessive-compulsive. About some things, at least. Plus with Christmas coming, I enjoy making gifts. 2nd item knit now. Watch for a post soon.
