Developments on the knitting idea

so a while ago I posted on an idea to make knitted photography props and other toys and things. Since then I have been playing the patterns and have done a lot of unpicking! I don’t want to take patterns from the web, so while I might looks for an idea the actually stitches and figuring out the pattern is all my own doing.

Please excuse the pics with my cell camera.

Hat and cocoon bag in action – Cazpi kindly agreed to try out some of the thing for me. This is a bigger than newborn baby with a newborn bag and hat, but the arms can stick out, will be making some longer ones too, just wanted to get the basic idea right. Think even for newborn the hat can be a little bigger

I still need a name. I am really think that Pinky has to be in the title somewhere. So these are some of the ones you guys liked and I liked so please vote and help me decide. Then to kick Andre and Yme to get a website done 😉 might need to start with a FaceBook page I guess



Running

I run because I have to. I know that sounds weird but running is like my happy pills. It makes me feel good. I love that I need nothing more and a good pair of shoes and the body I have. Well I do need to rope in a baby sitter but the Grandparents are usually more than willing.

While I run it is just me, and at the moment since my ipod is on the to-do list, and my thoughts. Maybe it is the forward motion of running but I always feel better and am able to have clearer more creative thoughts when I run. What I ‘write’ in my head when running is always so much better than when I come to sit down and actually get it out. Maybe I need some sort of a voice recorder that I can use when I run.

Somehow making out the words through the puffing and panting might be hard and I think that vocalizing what it is I am thinking will stop the free flow of ideas. I will just have to be resigned to the fact that what comes out in written word will never be quite as good as it was in my head but at least the ideas have a place to start.
