If last weeks spending cuts have brought a chill to your bones, this may be a comforting little antidote. Take a look at this beautiful stop-motion animation of wool spreading it’s cosy warmth around a home. I love the water from the shower running through the fingers.
I made the girls watch it this morning and after much amazed cooing they decided to try making one of their own. Here’s their animation effort, with myself supplying the knitting.
Not a bad way to spend a wet half-term morning but makes you begin to realise the sheer number of hours that must have gone in to crafting just a few seconds of aesthetic pleasure. The original version of course was filmed by frogging the fully knitted articles and then running the film backwards. I can think of a few projects I’d gladly frog for the making of a film but not this one.
