    Made this pop up card for class!


    And like while making this, the thought of how papercraft folk are legends streamed through constantly as I cut itty bitty pieces of paper :P

    I've mostly been chipping away at it sat-mon, mostly making the separate pieces (card body, shoes, girl) and resting and getting distracted for better parts of the day

    But yesterday Tuesday, there was really only making the mechanism for it to actually pop up and assembling left, so i finally buckled down and spent the whole god damn day non stop cutting up and measuring card and gluing strips etc

    On of the more tiring aspects is that I know how I want the mechanism to work, and I know how to execute it, it just takes so long to actually make so it gets kind of mind numbing cause I can't go faster or skip to the finished product.
    Vs when designing the shoes or making the girl, it was more on the fly then and there creation then execution of an idea vs anything deeply planned out

    Frogged the knee socks, cos swapping out yarn on the second sock didn't match the colourway of the original yarn close enough, so I ended up with a teeny band of Matching Sock and then the rest was "this is Same Pattern, but from a different pair". Which bugged me enough that I was never gonna be able to wear them outside the house, and having a set of socks that's just Hardly Ever gonna get worn felt like a waste of yarn (especially since the seafoam-green yarn that was one of the base colours was a birthday present from a friend).

    So instead, I'm making a different pair of socks in a faux-argyle pattern (the Business Casual pattern from Ravelry) and enjoying the heck out of it. Current plan is to make them long enough that they're just under the knee, and switch to double-stranded once I'm around ankle height so that I get the plush and squishy warmth of double-stranded sock feet.
