I have been getting into Uni, where we had a special visitor.
I managed to escape extermination, and after a couple of tutorials, the trees have been replaced with hands - or possibly gloves. The final deciding factor was these, which turned out much better than I expected, if a little small. I find those odd little fingers strangely expressive. They look even better pinned to a wall.
So now I am researching, collecting photos, drawing (!), knitting and modelling hands and gloves.
I"m exploring different sizes and styles, before deciding what I am actually going to do with them!
On an encouraging note, I got told off by a member of staff because I didn't put anything in for an exhibition which is coming up. I really didn't have anything suitable - they had to have D-rings attached, which is difficult with knitting - but in the depths of my flu induced misery, it was good to know someone thought my work was better than I did!
