Toy knitters of the yarniverse, I salute you.
I bow down before your attention to detail. I applaud your mastery of the miniature. I hadn’t appreciated the amount of fiddly work that goes into your creations.
So what’s that got to do with this blog? Well, the dolls that I’m knitting to look like me, Mr TwistedYarn, and the twinnage, for the ‘about’ page still aren’t quite finished. We’re two wellies and a few facial features away from completion. The effort hasn’t been helped by Mr TY changing his mind about what he wanted to wear, and by me having second thoughts about how many stripes should go on a welly. I know, I know: first world problems.
So here is the current incarnation of welly-production. There are a LOT of ends to weave in.
I think it’s knitting the clothes that takes so long. After all, it didn’t take me long to knit naked reindeer:-
…or naked pigeons:-
Lesson learned: don’t knit anything with clothes.
I’ll be back on the housey stuff soon. There’s a giant rainbow stained-glass window crocheted afghan waiting in the wings…
