Bayou Arcana

Rather excited this week, as I've been asked to knit a character from James Pearson's hotly-anticipated Bayou Arcana comic anthology. One-eyed Raccoon, as illustrated above by Sara Dunkerton, is a kind of re-animated once-dead raccoon. In fact, he's the devil himself.

I'm having to decided whether to stay close to Sara's fantastic interpretation, or maybe render him in a more cute and cuddly form. Obviously, still with all the bits missing! Either way, he's going to be a interesting project. How to knit bare bone and pieces of flesh? Hmmm...

Stuffed tiger

Two young taxidermists at work, in their Robin Specklespun Double Knitting zip-up cardies. They'd bagged this specimen in the back garden on Wednesday and by the end of the week they'd dried and stuffed it and turned it into a rug.

Knitters, sewers, crocheters and makers - meet up in Mooeys Mocha Shop, Worthing, every Tuesday morning (starting 7th Feb) and bring along your current projects for a spot of stitching and damn fine coffee. Procrastinators - bring along those shirts that have needed buttons sewing onto them for the past 6 months! You know you've got them.

I'll be there knitting my dolls, and so will crochet Queen Chi Chi Revolver so come along and say hello!
