I don’t have any thoughts on today’s Blog Week topic, which is what you plan to learn / accomplish in the next year. Instead, I’m choosing another topic which I don’t have too much to say about, but at least something. What embellishment have I done? Not very much (unless you count the beads and I already used that for something else) except for the occasional attachment of some flowers, etc.
I have two examples to offer. First of all, I made a hat for Hazel for Christmas out of the Octarine colorway. I chose to make it top down, starting with the yellow-green of the Evolution. The other end of the colorway is pink, and partway through the knitting I decided that I wanted to make some flowers in that color. Which I did – here’s a shot that shows the flowers pretty well.
Another project with an embellishment is a doll outfit I made which also includes a hat with embellishment. Here it is:
This remarkable little doll is only about six inches tall, and she’s “Earth Mother” shaped. Here’s a picture of her in a bathing suit to show that, so that you will understand why the coat makes her “look fat” – I don’t really think it’s out of scale.
