I had planned to make some Origami-ish slippers. Probably the Norwegian slipper type. (Although I want to make Nola’s Slippers, I didn’t know what their construction was, and didn’t think of them as being Origami-ish until Cookie posted about them today.) Oh, and hey look… while linking to the pattern, I saw that there’s a modified version of those slippers, knit in the round.
Then I had the idea to make a knitted bunny with some dark brown angora yarn that I got in a yarn swap years ago. (Heh. Making a knitted bunny out of angora. The irony of it.) I knit my washcloth-sized square of fabric, and then attempted to turn it into a bunny. But the extreme furriness of the yarn, combined with the very dark color, made it look more like a dead rat.
Even worse were the flashbacks to my high school biology class in which we dissected muskrats. I threw the dead rat skin into the trash. (But later retrieved it, as I have an idea that may show up in the near future. Hee.)
The third time was the charm. I made this little pinwheel purse that’s based on an origami design.
Most likely I’ll use it as a little gift box for some tiny trinket.
