The topic for Day 1 is “A Day In The Life.”
Describe a day in the life of a project that you have made, or are in the process of making.
I’ve decided to chronicle a day in the life of my Norwegian stranded color work mittens–specifically, the day I cast them on. It all began at Yarnover 2014, where I was taking Fearless Two-Color Mittens with Mary Scott Huff. I went to class feeling completely clueless and awkward.
I left class still clueless and awkward, but not about Norwegian stranded color work.
This T-Rex is out there in the wilds of Ravelry, stalking for prey. It’s got a taste for color work now.
By the way, for those of you who are unfamiliar with the original source of the art above, I want to let you in on the joke. The art is from Dinosaur Comics, a constrained web comic by Ryan North. The comic’s gimmick is that it every strip uses the same artwork; only the dialogue varies. A couple of years ago, Mr. North shared an unwritten comic panel online and invited fans to make their own Dinosaur Comics. You can too.
