Joining Ginny and friends for Yarn Along is my diorama of The Owl and The Pussycat. No it isn’t a “setup” just for the post, I really was making this and reading that. It is being made for a friend of mine for reasons I am not allowed to go into. Let me say it is a celebratory gift. Congratulations Debra!
Both critters are my own designs. The Owl being inspired by a broach I purchased from WinterOwls and is knitted with buttons added to help it see. The Pussycat is an amigurumi critter who is mainly crochet and looks a bit like she is thinking “are we there yet?” According to the poem ” they sailed away for a year and a day” My goodness! Together in a small boat for 366 days!! I guess they would have ironed all their issues out in that time and no doubt their marriage, which was performed by a Turkey on a hill, would have been “smooth sailing”. Pussycat’s eyes were inspired by my favorite cat Mr Bowie and I know the cat is a girl because I reread the poem to make sure. I have ATTD which is “attention to tiny detail” so you can be sure there will be both money and honey when I finish and present the diorama to my friend. A footnote: my son made the “beautiful pea green boat” because he loves Debra almost as much as me.
