You know you want some too

What is it about fall that make me turning into a felting queen? The same thing happened last year at this time. Except then it was cosmetic bags and this year it’s toys and pot holders. I attempted to design a Devon Rex toy for Mum. It turned out to be a super cute dog. Like a beagle. I over exaggerated the muzzle and didn’t get enough of a break between the nose and forehead. I’ll try again only this time use short rows and start at the mouth instead of the top of the head, worry about assembly later. Other than being a dog, I am very pleased with how the project came out, pre-felting of course.

I haven’t done much by way of the 9 yarns in the challenge. Felting takes a lot of yarn so I’m definitely moving forward on the challenge but I’m at a bit of a standstill with the specific yarns. I was designing a waving hat with the navy Pastaza and need to get back to that.

At knitting group last night I was whining about using the yellow microspun. In response we decided that The Communicator would look excellent in a pair of yellow stirrup pants. Like they had in the 80s. Yellow with some fun fur ruffles in bright blue. Yellow with a hot pink bull’s-eye on the butt. Yellow with a bathroom flap on the butt. Yellow with stirrups and bellbottoms. Yellow with a bright blue adult soaker. Yellow with a matching low cut yellow tank top.
I’ve done a rendition of what I think the ideal pants would look like. The Communicator laughed as we decided that we could take turns working on them and pass them around the group. It's ok, you can admit it, I know you want a pair too!

You know what else I need? Creamer. We’ve been without for the past two days and it’s driving me insane not to have coffee in the morning. Those little routines get so ingrained. Off to go buy some creamer.
