… knit …

Strange and funny

26 maj 2020

There might be something right about that knitting statement.
When thinking on how to knit it is impossible to coordinate mind and hands, very frustrating.
Ignoring logic, closing my eyes and clearing my head from thoughts
my hands and brain work on autopilot and it is possible to knit.
Strange.

 

Good Morning

They say knitting is like riding a bicycle
once learned it will stay with you for life.
I will put this saying to the test the rest of may.

Up until now I have been a reluctant knitter, deemed almost hopeless by those who with outer worldly patience insisted on learning me the most basic how to skills.  Mom, Mother in law and Mona, I woke up yesterday with a project Idea so I will finally will give knitting a try.

Good morning …

Hmm bad hair day

Mixed Fibre

05 maj 2020

Many thin strands with soft fibres of flax are carefully knotted and combed into the 18th century hairdo.  To create an illusion of algae and underwater feel the flax are complemented with fluffed green vintage rayon fibres.

Ooo the Beard!

Thirty years ago,

I found this small bundle of flax fibres in the trash. Someone had glued it on the middle and turned it into a beard for some costume party or theatre play. When there was no more use for the battered beard they threw it away and I found it, saved it in a box and now I will re purpose the flax fibres for a 18th century hair do.

Time fly by
I have been sewing on a sculpture project and making fly fringe tufts.

I always wanted to try out making  an elaborate 18th century hairdo but before attempting to make one in scale 1:1 it might be better to experiment on something smaller. This head might do.
