Did you finish the knitting?

30 juni 2020

It was fun and difficult to knit. I soon discovered that I only could knit when walking. If I stood still I started to think and the knitting connection between hands and mind broke. Strange and interesting. There is still some work to be done on this project and I might  even attempt to knit a neater one with white thread instead of summer green.

This is what my first knitting looks like seen from the front.

This is the backside.

Hello, Challenge!
Perhaps some re purposing textiles and sewing
will do good in these strange times.
Taking the time to read a book is nice.

But why not …

Start this project up slowly with not picking a book or a character from a book.
Selecting a century might be good and selecting materials to.
Simply start in the wrong end.

A small 14k gold chain serve as reference for the right golden colour.
In real life this is a near perfect colour match.
Hmm, how many soup cube foils with this colour do I have?
lets see 1, 2, 3, 4. 5 ….

I like to work with recycled materials and I save the metal foil wrapping that normally would be discarded as waste when unwrapping a chocolate bar or a soup cube.  I do work with metal leafs such as gold, brass, aluminium and silver but I find these modern leafs to thin to use on a surface exposed to wear. The foils above are sturdier and they are pre-glued to a paper backing. If the chocolate paper was good for machine sewing then perhaps the soup cube foil might be good for gilding buttons.



Erk! Soup for dinner, again
