Blues gather for Project Spectrum Blue


The Blues is made up of the blue Totoros who insisted on posing with Blue Koigu Totoro on the Catbus square of my quilt. The square was one of 9 quilted in a group where we all learned to quilt in 1998. The catbus was made by our talented teacher.


Koigu demanded to show off the Noro silk garden, color 244 and Kureyon color 154. I want to try my hand at felting and am planning Klaralund with the Silk Garden.
I've started cable/seed stitch socks in Wildefoote. It is crunchy as I read on another blog and not fun to knit, but the sock itself feels pretty good. Koigu thinks I should "Get a life" , clean my room and get that sewing machine out. Sigh. He had to pose sideways putting his best eye forward, because I am embroidery impaired. Maybe that is why he is cranky.

PS: I apologize for not replying to some comments as blogger does not show an email address for everyone. Regarding questions about knitting a Totoro, please send me an email at Acornbudatyahoodotcom and I will invite to you test knit one.

koigu totoro is cute - even with his one eye that i can see! i find faces very challenging whether in drawing, stitching or putting a face together - guess practice makes perfect....

And welcome home to the new Noro. You must be having a hard time knitting that sock with all that new yarn calling to you...

Cute! And the silk garden is going to make a lovely Klaralund.

See, that is exactly the reason that I can't respond to your comments on my blog. But now I have your email. Bwah-ha-ha!
