Allena- Spin rope to tie them up
Your assignment for this month is to study the cloud formations you have recorded in your sketchbook. Be inspired by colors, textures, shapes, and images. Tell us what you saw in the sky ceiling, and how you interpreted what you saw.
Allena-MLP or bunnies
Follow a leader. Find a project that a currently-enrolled House Cup classmate created and make the same thing.
Knitters, crocheters, and weavers: Follow the same pattern; produce the same object. You may make modifications as to size and yarn to fit your own needs. If your target crafter did not use a pattern (or didn’t link to it), just show that your crafting produced the same result as theirs.
Spinners: Try your best to match weight, ply structure/technique, and other physical properties of the yarn. Colorways do not need to be the same, though if the technique depends on multicolored fiber please use with the same general type of color variation (e.g. you canfractal-spin a solid white roving, but the finished project won’t reflect the technique in any easily visible way. But a red-yellow-blue fractal-spun roving is a perfectly acceptable imitation of a black-and-white one.).
Dyers: Use the same dyeing technique; produce a similar colorway. Dyeing can be much less easily predictable than other crafts, particularly for beginners, so don’t worry if your kettle-dyed blobs are distributed differently from their blobs or if your red dye turns out to not be the same red as theirs. Just do your best and explain how you imitated your target dyework.
Please link to the project page (or stash page for spinning and dyeing) of the project you are emulating in your turn in.
Enjoy the fruits of your labors, and craft something better! Take a look at your past project(s) and find one or two techniques that challenged you to learn and grow as a crafter. Then use those hard-won skills to craft a new project. Explain how this project is the fruit of your previous projects.
Non-Ravelry crafts will be accepted with prior approval.
