Running Away with Inspiration

I do apologize, but these little gears have sent my brain’s gears into motion at top speed.  I swung by World Market yesterday, looking for further inspiration.  I picked up several paper fans, which I plan on heavily modifying via knitted lace.  The inspiration for this came from a similar project I found on Ravelry here, and which I plan on knitting myself for the summer – provided, of course, that I somehow find the time for it!

I also have a really interesting concept for a thrummed aviator cap, which may or may not turn out the way I envision.  Either way, I will shortly be stash diving to making a sample!

So, while these ideas are forming in my mind, I cant seem to produce anything worth blogging about.  I keep trying to figure out how to write out my thoughts, but I can’t imagine you are at all interested in hearing my geeky rant on steampunk exploration and it’s applications with yarn.  Although, I could very well be mistaken.  Interweave has recently produced an ebook from 19th Century England and has been encouraging readers to “dive into Victorian knitting.”

I don’t know what’s going to become of me!  I’ve worn away the skin on my left index finger, between the second and third knuckle, from the sliding tension of yarn at every available moment.

Photoshoots to come; it has been rather rainy here lately.

    teehee. Good to see the genre has absolutely obsessed you 🙂 I was similarly overcome about a year ago. Let me know when you have parasols for sale! The mini top hat went with me to Michigan this weekend and was the perfect delivery vehicle for my download cards. Mission accomplished.
