Two Green Fish

Happy Halloween! More fish, green ones this time.

The top green fish has a knitted head and tail, cashmere body and fins. The top fin is alpaca.

The bottom fish is all knit wool sweaters. That usually works out fine because knits stretch similarly, but as you can see on this fine fish, they are shaped a little oddly :-)

That is because the fair isle section of the sweater felted up more tightly than any other parts, ie no stretch. When I stuffed this fish, it was like they had a belt on!

Back to work and new tattooed Ladies

It’s been a week since I got back from Northampton and I am working on dolls but also doing things that I’d postponed until after the show. And Fall chores, mostly garden related. So, my time in the studio is less than usual but I will be back to full steam soon.

Here is the first piece I’ve finished-

She has Christmas skeleton tattoos.

A side view so you can see her curves.

And a little dark brown glass, 3-hole button on her belt.
