Work space wednesday: failed collar experiment and a pile of sweaters waiting for their ends to be woven in while dealing with a muggy evening in Baltimore (a wonderful combination to help Amu enjoy her night in a slight foul mood… Something she would normally not publicly admit)

Some of the boys are checking out the giant case taking up space in the tiny living room.
A while ago I posted about getting my hands on an old wooden tool box that I decided to fix up and customize into a traveling display case. I finally finished cleaning it (removed horrid unknown dirt-paint-stain) and it was dropped off to my house this morning. In the shop it just seems like a fair size case but in my house it’s just huge. I think size wise will be take up a good amount of the table yet small enough if I ever have to share a space with someone.
So much still needs to be done to it. I’m hoping to decorate the inside and decide on how to create as much usable display space as possible. I also want to paint or silk screen my logo on the outside some where (I want to give it an old hand painted sign kind of feel to it). All this on top of everything else that needs to be done (geta, sweaters, teddies…. Really, I can just go on). Now I need to stop myself from buying all of the lovely vintage indigo dyed kimono/yukata panels I keep finding on etsy to drape all over the case… Especially those old plaid pieces. They are really hard to resist.

I want to fill this basket up with sweaters before Otakon. I’m not sure if I can do it or not but Yuuta and Kouta are convinced that I can.

YoSD stripes in the works.

As of tomorrow night my etsy shop (poisonbleu.etsy.com) will be closing while I prepare for Otakon. In case anyone was keeping an eye on an item or two, anything left when the shop closes will be added to convention stock. I’ll reopen after the con and as soon after I go over everything that is left over.

For anyone going to Otakon I just received my table location this week so I’ll be announcing that as we get closer to the convention.

Ahh!!!! Seiji makes me want to knit all of the MSD sized things.

So teddies won the vote on IG. I went with the panda… Because pandas are bears too. Not 100% with this cap. I made some changes to how I usually knit my ears and I’m not liking what I’m seeing. So off they go when I have a moment to spare and I’ll reknit a new set. It was a nice break from sweaters and totoro caps.

Seiji is hanging out with me tonight trying on my test cap. I had made adjustments to my YoSD sized cap pattern to fit MSD sized heads. The math worked out first time around and is looking good so far. Now to decide what kind of ears to add.
