This week I have been crocheting a mini-dress from strips of tights. This is for a univeristy student's collection and I was relieved to find out that it is supposed to be ugly. Vaguely resembles some kind of surgical appliance to my eyes...
Crocheting with tights is very painful - not sure why it hurts the thumbs so much, but it does, going right up the forearms. I fear my arms will look like Popeye's by the time I finish this!
I'm sewing a box...it kind of blew my mind that I was first making a box, then sewing fabric on it to make it look like wood. This has got a long way to go yet before it is ready for use in a new animation.
Also on the needles, a complex knitted waistcoat in recycled denim jeans yarn, which is starting to look very nice indeed.
