brightlights: I have software which makes patterns (cross stitch) and I assume from looking at previous knitting pics that it's kinda the same principal. Anyway, here are some really quick patterns (ie. minimal effort) I have come up with (Clark Gable is Gomez Adams, is that right?? I love him).
Let me know if you want more effort put in and whether another picture might suit better??
Soooooo..... here is my version (complete with pink raw silk - cuz I wanna girl mouse. Apparently they don't stink as much). My dimensions were 8 inch square. I used pink raw silk, blue polar fleece (cut from my other son's dressing gown which doesn't fit anymore) and a layer of wadding.
"Home made blockout is made by simmering "Future" acrylic floorwax in a pan on the stove until it thickens to a paintable consistency. I add a little red food coloring to make the acrylic blockout visible. Ammonia is the solvent for this."
I can't seem to find any info. on the ingredients of Future Floor Wax - hmmm - anyone else know what's in Future Floor Wax???
I'm a willing guinea pig though - I will have a go at it at some stage!!! I'll keep you posted.
