Last night I snuck a post in about going to see the new 'Much Ado About Nothing' directed by Joss Whedon, and I'm still in a Bard-ly mood. So I took a stroll down project memory lane.
First, in my own projects. I participated in a Shakespeare swap last year, where my spoilee's favorite play was 'Macbeth', and she particularly loved Lady Macbeth. Well, who doesn't, really? So I tried to pick out some of her quotes in my crafting, like this owl cowl, for 'I heard the owl scream and the crickets cry. Did not you speak?':
See the owls around the neck? This was my first time doing beading:
I really want to do more things with that owl pattern, it is so cute.
Of course, you can't reference Lady Macbeth without the damn'd spot that won't come out. I used Kool-Aid to dye some yarn rather than kill a king:
Okay, onto some other, less bloody, things from Stratford. I also received a wonderful swap package myself, if you're on Ravelry you can see the post about it. Part of my spoilage was a skein of Dream in Color Smooshy in Ruby River:
I already have a project all queued up for it, funnily enough inspired by another literary genius, Jane Austen. I want to make the Rose Garden shawl from the Summer 2012 issue of Jane Austen Knits.
And having inspired myself to want to knit that now, I must get back to my spinning. One week of Tour de Fleece down and I haven't crashed yet! For more inspiration, go to Woolen Diversions.
