No More Worries
Just a hint, it is going to be for a worry doll. The point is that you’re supposed to give the doll your worries to worry about at night and leave your own mind free. I have never seen a knit version of the little Guatemalan dolls. Mine is going to be much bigger (will hold more worries perhaps). I bought the yarn today and am so excited about making it. I have been wanting to make toys all along and this is my chance to make the first one.
At the same time, I’m getting ready to go to Chicago. It means taking care of things here before I leave, along with figuring what I’m taking with. I don’t worry about taking clothes. I have enough stuff in my place there to manage. It is things like the supplies to make the worry doll. I am hoping to have this draft done before I go on Monday so I can print up a hard copy to take with. I get a better sense of the flow of things when I work from a hard copy than when I just read it on a screen.
The picture is a group of worry dolls that came from Guatemala. I think I’ll drop off my worries about finishing everything with the dolls tonight before I go to bed. Supposedly the worries will be gone by morning. Let’s see what happens.
