I would love to promise that this is the last of the fox related things, but the urge to use this knitted fur technique to make more and more is incredibly powerful!
and without further ado, fox ears:
So very cute! Although the cats seem to think that they’re either a toy just for them, or a small furry animal just begging to be pounced on…
Here you can see Outbreak “helping” within three seconds of my placing the ears in the floor for a photograph. I suspect I will need to knit them something using the same knitted fur technique I have used for the ears…
Oh, normally at this point I would link a pattern but…there isn’t one. This is me just playing around…
In other wooly news, I finally spun and plyed the Shetland fleece I have been playing with for the last few weeks – it was a challenge for myself to spin as fine as possible, as consistently as possible. Having been 2 plyed it has come out at 150m of lace weight yarn. It’s a little thinner in places, but not thicker, so it’s definitely getting there!!
No idea what it will be. However, I have plans and ideas in the works that require me to spin yarn, so more shall be spun, but with intention.
…am I the only one that think that sounded unnecessarily aggressive? Spinning with intention?
Anyhoo, very busy week at work, no gaming but Inkling did get to go to a trampoline birthday party and as he is under five, I had to go with him and ‘supervise’. The sore muscles today were worth it. Felix didn’t miss out as she got to have an adventure with Engel on the motorbike.
After so much excitement, we finished the weekend with board games and cleaning up some Battletech miniatures that the terrors are looking forward to painting.
Until next week, take care!
