How to create soft and cuddly monster
Few weeks ago, my child draw a picture. It was a very specific drawing, with many details. Then I was asked to knit this monster. As always I couldn't say no. We picked the color and yarn.
I took my knitting needles and began to experiment.
I always wonder if I can capture the vision of the artist. If I can translate the two dimensional drawing into the three dimensional knitted toy. I must have done a good job, since I have received several hugs and kisses in exchange for a new toy to play with.
We named him (or her?) Loopy.
In a sense this is what design is about. Translate an idea or a vision into an actual product.
Now, I have some more drawings. And of course more monsters to knit.
Thank you for visiting.
