It is my dream, my fantasy.
And I think I want to keep it that way. To run a shop for business involves hard work and dedication. I am like a little child who wants a candy shop so that she could have candies every day.
So, I knitted myself a yarn shop.
I started with little human figures. Because they are yarn shop keepers, I dressed them nicely in cardigans and jumpers knitted with Rowan fine tweed, my favorite yarn of all.
I bought these balls just to knit these tiny jumpers.
I can knit hundreds of little outfits for my dollies with them.
I have a knitter, a spinner and a little lady.
The hardest bit for this project was this spinning wheel. I could not work too much in details, but I tried to make something simple with a knitted wheel and light weight garden wire. The wheel has a cardboard inside.
This knitted shelf has light weight cardboard to keep the shape. Separations are removable. And for the yarn balls, I wind a bit of tapestry wool around a tiny card, cut into 1 cm x 0.5 cm or so. It took me a while to fill the shelf, but it looks nice and make this project more complete, doesn’t it?
I feel lucky that I know how to have fun with very little materials .
