I found these little glass Totoro in a San Diego shop. It was a chance meeting and I had to to go back and clean out the store's stash. I try to talk myself into being sensible when it comes to Totoro. I mean...there are people starving, and is it really dignified for someone my age to collect Totoro? Luckily blogless Kathy gave me the push I needed and the little group came home with me. Here they are posing with some cell phone charms in the 99 cents oak leaf/acorn thingy I picked up at Savers the other day. They are all quite tolerant with the filter experiment "vignette white".
I frogged my stash busting scarf to make a blue bunny. Again I tried experimenting with a larger head, but it made for larger front legs, too, and resulted in a very masculine bunny. I don't know if I'll keep the nose and whiskers or not. The Crystal Palace Country silk has been in my stash for many many years. I think some of it has found it home!! I fell off my yarn diet and got some kid merino for more bunnies. I'm not sure if stuffing counts, let's say not. Anyone know of a place to get cheap wool stuffing that doesn't charge and arm and leg to ship to Hawaii? I ordered Brown sheep mill ends from The Sheep Shed to try out. I can practice spinning on it, too!
The spinning is going a little faster. I'm going for the thinner yarn, now. I adore my spindle from the Isle of Wight:) I'm lusting for the "bog oak" spindle. Fascinating stuff, bog oak.
All my pumpkin yarn has been spun up and knit into carrots. I updated the pattern on the side bar to include the formula for enlarging them. I'm looking for a project for my purpley/blue "art yarn".
