Not quite miniature enough
I made a blog mention of some crocheted figures I’d made, ooh, a long time ago and which I’d like to share now. There’s too many to blog about, so here are a set of slide shows showing each of the figures and with accompanying notes.
Howie is a school boy circa 1950s. He is about 5-6″ tall and has curly red hair, rumpled socks, messy tie, blazer with button and button holes and school cap emblazoned with badge and trimmed. He carries a satchel containing one book, a banana and an apple.
And, oh, how well I remember those wet, red chapped knees! It wasn’t just the boys who suffered. A gabardine raincoat was only mildly waterproof and would eventually drip all down your bare legs where the howling wind would finish the job, dyeing your socks navy blue.
