Not exactly….but I was using wool just like I’d use paint. I was a little handicapped by lack of colours and as I’ve never done this before lack of skill. I’m not sure I can mix wool. ( note to self….maybe I could twist 2 colours together…)
However I didn’t…or haven’t so far.
I probably would not have even tried to paint with wool except that there were no pink socks to be had or cheap short tops.
So I bought several balls of wool and set to work.
I’m not even very good at painting roses, but I had pink in my mind.
I was thinking of the emperor’s new clothes analogy here as I am not convinced that my woollen roses don’t look like a mess. But on the other hand , if I stride confidently about then perhaps anyone noticing might think that it is a new fashion/ abstract/ modern art and not that someone has inexpertly sewed some rough roses and leaves on a €2 cashmere jumper to hide a few marks.
It was quite good fun to do and I found a good use for my big David Hockney portrait book by sticking it inside the jumper so I didn’t sew the front to the back accidentally. That has happened before.
As for the pink socks….I tidied out my sock drawer and found a pair of dark pink ones which will do. ( saves me painting a black pair…..not really…..?)
Wine time is at someone else’s house tonight so need to get ready to go.
