Wool and Feathers

One is not usually prone to posting pictures of unknitted wool.
But One always says, yes One does, One always says
"Never say Never"
The wool, photographed and posted below,  arrived in the post all the way from 
A-mare-i-ka, A-mar-i-ka (sung to the tune of "America" from West Side Story.)

100% American wool
designed by

Prompt Delivery Test (all the way from America) - TICK
Colour Test - (a bloody great big) TICK
Touch Test - TICK
Smell Test - TICK

Tonight the KNIT Test.

Did one add the extras, like seed pods, snake skin, dead praying mantis (or were they bones of a chook)? Or was it a terrorist parcel wot died in the post? My money's on the letter...er latter!

It is called "Styling" Ford.
STYLING.

"dead praying mantis?"

It is a bat.
and it's not dead

It is RESTING.
It's not DEAD.
No no, it's stunned, tired and shagged out.

I do love your sculptures, or as some people might call them, tea cosies! I think they're sculptures! They are extraordinary. And have a real sense of curiosity and experimentation about them, which I always appreciate.
Have a lovely weekend. Love Vanessa xxx
