I’m trying very hard to convince myself that I do not need to frog back about 2cm worth of rows…. But I’m not happy with this piece right now. It’s not the fact that I have to re-knit those rows but rather having make sure I catch all of the 100+ stitches and not drop a single one… 
Let the frogging begin…

Next bjd project: a younger version of Daisuke. I purchased the DWC1 heads (he is getting two) from Volks early last year and the SD10 body was delivered from Mandarake yesterday. Despite people saying that the head was a perfect fit for this body it still seems a little bobble headed to me but I’m going to make it work. I had little expectations of this doing much along the lines of posing but so far it’s a solid stander and sits beautifully. I mainly bought it for the simple fact that I personally think that this is the prettiest body Volks made and thought this was the perfect body for this doll. Next thing to think about: send the heads out to be painted or do it myself? I don’t think I would do the poor boy justice.

Hours on top of hours of knitting right there. 2ply lace on 000 needles. The finished piece will be for a MSD sized doll.
Many times I thought I had my math figured out but I was thrown a few surprises along the way. I only have less than two weeks to finish with another project semi knitted waiting for me to pick back up… So I really do not have time for mistakes or frogging. The piece has been knitted to rhythm of the chat “oh please work out, oh please work out, oh please work out…”

Revisiting an old idea I had last year that I abandoned due to lack of time… I have even less time now but I’m giving it a try anyway. Wish me luck that I get it done in less than two weeks.

Seiji and Mr Z

I think this is the week of Seiji. My lovely friend Aki on IG wanted to see a photo of these two after I posted the last one of Seiji and Head. How could I ever reject such a request?! I thought I would post it here as well…. Because I can.

Little Seiji and his Uncle Daisuke. 

If I were to follow my own story these two would never actually meet since they are decades apart (Daisuke would have passed on long before Seiji is even thought of… So sad when I see it typed out). So cute photographed together.

Every year at the Sakura Matsuri there is an awesome vendor who sells vintage kimono panels. I’ve gotten some really lovely pieces from her in the past. This year I had Z and Daisuke in mind. When I brought these up to the vendor the first thing she said was “it seems that someone likes the older pieces”. It turns out that these these date back to the 1940s (perfect for Z and Head). The top one is hemp and has some sheerness to it. I was given a discount on the middle piece because it was patched and stained (the patchwork and stain was the selling point for me so a big win with the discount). I’m either going to have someone make kimono/haori/yukata for my two or attempt it myself. I might even get a bit left over to make some hanao for geta or even some prop items. Very excited about these finds.

It looks like Seiji made a friend.

I still have a few photos to edit from the lovely meet that happened yesterday. It was such a beautiful day and perfect for photo taking. Here is a cute one that stuck out and made me chuckle a little. Seiji is my little guy but the lovely lady sitting with him belongs to sentrythedefiant. I had asked Amber if it was okay to photograph the two together. The colors of their outfits match exactly. 
Maybe she’s a dark queen and Seiji is her minion or maybe this could be something of a Kuroshitsuji spin off where she is his nanny. Too many possible stories to tell here and they all smell of success… As soon as someone gets on writing and animating it. 

There were so many cuties at this meet so more photos to come.

Seams sanded, bathed, restrung and he even got a hair cut. Seiji is ready to go out and play… As long as he doesn’t get his outfit dirty.
