meet Woolter

5 straight days of romping with friends cannot be summed up in a picture or two, so you'll just have to trust me that there has been much fun of late. The lack of knitting that results does not feed the blog, though, so luckily the crafty family continues to provide blog fodder.

First, in this house we're firm believers in happy accidents, a la Bob Ross, so when a green wool ball-in-progress accidentally became a multi-appendaged mutant, we decided to turn it into something fun. We're also fans of Insubordiknit's Monster Hats, so it seemed only natural that when I was on my way out the door for beverages with buddies last weekend, I suggested the family amuse themselves by making this ball into a "googly-eyed thing with big freaky mouth." Came home that evening to find this lovely being on the counter, with a note introducing himself as Woolter. :-) Yes, we know it's weird and we like it that way, thank you very much.

The sign language class I'm taking with Paige has the whole family in on the fun, in accordance with my evil plan. The ASL book from a similar class that I took in 1979 (yowza!) has become our constant companion so we can look up signs as we need them. We're also having a blast browsing through this awesome site.

Scott started plying the tencel/merino that we bought at Pixie Sticks and it's absolutely luscious! He still says the tencel is a bit slippery to spin, but after feeling and seeing this perfectly balanced skein of yarn, he agrees it's worth the effort. Yeah!!
