Out With The Old, In With The New
Between Christmas and New Year I had a bit of clear-out. I got rid of a lot of old clothes. Amongst them was an old Aran jumper that I had knitted with cotton yarn. It had become shapeless, bobbled and the cuffs were frayed. I had put a lot of work into it though so I couldn’t let it go without documenting it here. The same goes for an old fancy dress costume that I made using fabric paints on a pillowcase. I ran out of blue paint towards the end – hence the weird cloudy edges. I strung little coloured balloons from the bottom so that they hung round my knees. They didn’t last long! [I didn’t know whether I could get in trouble for posting the full picture so I’ve blobbed out some of it. Can anybody tell me if it’s okay to display the full version?]
What about the new? Well, Santa brought me a new origami book. 😀 It’s another book by Mukerji called “Ornamental Origami”. I asked for it mainly for the “intersecting plane” models but I’ve been having a go at some of the other models in the book first. I started with a patterned icosahedron but I got bored with it before I’d even got halfway. I dismantled it and used most of the paper in the next model.
While I was in the middle of making this model I had some idle time with some empty after-dinner mint wrappers. (Can’t think where they came from. ;)) This is made from 12 standard sonobe units.
