and obviously it had a great impact on you! i just klicked through all your posts today and like you working so continuosly on a thing. do you see it as well? one can really see you enjoying your free time and using it well. still very fascinated by your working trials, the light! did you think of working with a diaprojektor, any artificial light? i will post some examples of a work of a friend that i always keep in my mind... textures and light

All I can say is yes, ola, the impact, i laughed when the post appeared on screen near to the silly knitted mask but I wish I would use my free time more effective, not so content on that. I am just not able to concentrate as long as I want to, oh all this money earning and organising things every day, wish I would have a well paid scholarship for all that interesting things that should be explored and done. Yes, I thought about light a lot, rooms, curtains, light, shadow...now I have to go back calculating newzealandpliceuniforms...would love to see that post.

oh the wool pants! i can not remember wearing them but do exactly remember the feel and the colours. they were really beautiful. and i love the knitted pants in the shop you linked. i have to post the knitted pants you made for lou and b wore when he was fat and tiny. oh wool pants are the best - except you must have hated to wear them, or is it just the idea of having been forced to wear them? glad you have the photos, kuss, d
