pigs for yarn along!

Joining Ginny this week for yarn along and talking about books and projects, I present two pigs. Pig 1 is a golden paper pig which of course I call Bacon and my first attempt at origami which I love but find excruciating challenging. I am going to try a squirrel next and the pattern is on youtube.  I hope following along with someone else will make it easier. I would like to make little homes to crate my koalas in when I send them off.Shakespeare,origami golden pig and 1/3  of knitted cardigan
Reading this week  is from the  DK’s eyewitness series and is all about the life and times of Shakespeare. I am using it to promote discussion with my son and to hopefully encourage a lifelong fascination with “The Bard”

Pig 2 is my “project in gift bag”jacket wrap. This is a project I keep near the door and grab if I have to go somewhere in a hurry and don’t have time to put together all the bits that constitute my usual projects. This project hasn’t had much attention lately but then a few minor disasters happened (resolved now) and voilà! The back is finished and a good start to the right front! Not bad for  6 months work! LOL! Anyone else have projects on the go without a specified date? Kind of nice really. The “no hurry” option. Don’t forget you can join yarn along and show us all what you are making and reading.

  1. Sharon, your origami “Bacon” looks great! I’ve never tried origami but I suspect it is an art for the most patient of people. Your idea to make little homes for your fabulous koalas is superb! I’d feel daunted by that challenge but I know w/your skills and talent, it’ll be just fantastic! Can’t wait to see what you create.


  2. HaHa! I think your brain has to be wired in a special way. I totally adore it and admire origamists. They are like magicians, pulling delicate creations out of a bit of paper. Gosh it would be hard to teach. 🙂


  3. I can’t wait to see the origami squirrel! I might try it myself, however I wasn’t even skilled enough to make a paper airplane when I was a kid….
