For the 9th Totoro I used two balls of yarn that were at their end. When I reached the end of the yarn, I was confused. What do you do?
I had this lone thread staring at me. Mocking me. It knew that the project was unfinished, but it was finished too and there was no amount of coaxing to go any further.
Another sister-in-law was down, named Loey, and she is a crazy knitter as well. Come to think of it, I think the majority of the women in Dove’s family like to knit. Anyway, they suggested to DOUBLE up the separate yarn! Just take the end, align the beginning with it, and knit it as one!
WHAT MADNESS IS THIS?!
Wouldn’t that look weird? Wouldn’t that look extra thick? But I’m not one to doubt knitting experts, unless of course there should be two different knit stitches. I did as I was told because I get in enough trouble as it is.
I will not bore you with another three entries on my next three Totoros.
Rest assured, I will find something else equally as boring to exact upon you.
I’ve been searching for eyes. It’s hard to find them. I don’t want the adhesive ones; I want ones I can sew on. And I want them cheap. And I want them with black pupils and I want white … uh… whatever the white part of the eyes are called. And while I’m at it, I want a coconut cream pie as well.
Yes, my fourth project is a Totoro again. And it was NEW YEAR’S EVE! HUZZAH! And New Year’s Day.
The first thing we did for New Year’s eve was hang out with some friends. Andrea D’Silva and her husband Rodney are friends of mine from university and we all like knitting and playing board games! Well, that former statement isn’t really true for all elements in that set, but still, we did do board game playing and knitting!
IT’S DONE! Feast your eyes on what Manpans has christened, “The Derp Totoro”.
Yes, my first Totoro is a bit wonky.
Yes, you may laugh.
But it’s my very first Totoro and I lurves it! HUZZAH!
There is something wrong with my brain.
I know YOU have thought this, but I’m talking about something more specific. I have problems recalling things. Manpans calls me fishbrain and there is a bit of truth to that like there is a bit of fat in pork rinds. Mmmm… pork rinds.
