Oh dear, I’ve been a bit lax on my blogging lately. Last week I spent nearly every day making soap to re-stock after the fair. I’ve also been trying to catch up on the Mystery Sock but am a bit behind. Hopefully I will catch up at the weekend.
I have started a new project though. It is a joke present for a friend. He is also a Mighty Boosh fan and ages ago asked if I would be able to make him a “Tony Harrison” head.
I never got round to it but it is his big four-oh in a week and a half so I thought I would make it as a surprise. I am basing it on a balaclava and then adding tentacles with pipe cleaners inside them.
I also bought yarn!!
10 skeins of Araucania Toconao in a gorgeous vibrant semi solid red. And a couple of single balls of Louisa Harding Jasmine for one of these owls from Knit Simple Holiday 2010.
