Wow its been a busy week here at amigurumi barmy land. I've hardly stopped, I've been working hard on the next too bedtime omnipoms and they are fianlly finished.
First up here is Twist.
I knitted her blanket out of a very fine sock yarn on 2mm needles. I wanted it to be to scale but I didn't realise at the time that this meant it was gonna take the same amount of time it takes to knit a big blanket. Knitting it was boring, fiddly and slow, I hated it. Half way through I wanted to chuck it in the bin and if it wasn't for the beautiful soft yarn with its pretty colours I think I might have. The weird thing is as soon as I'd finished it I loved it and wanted to make another straight away for a different doll. What can I say, we crafters are strange folk :)
Next is Cooper
I made Coopers story book using real book binding techniques and the mini book turned out great. I covered it with a silk ribbon which matched his eyes and found a motif of strawberries in my stash of pretty things I'll use one day. I like to think its a story about the omnipoms trying to make jam and getting in a very sticky mess :)
