Feng Shui Slugs

January 25, 2010

Who knew? Custom Order Feng Shui Slugs for a lovely lady in Belgium.
Passion/ Love Slug, Yin and Yang Slugs.

The Passion/Love Slug is gorgeous in rich, red and super-soft yarns. I used a scarlet red chenille yarn that has amazing tiny flickers of sparkly red through it – like the sparks of passion!

I also used another shade of red chenille yarn and a yarn made up of loads of fiery red threads.

I noticed (and you can see it in the photo) one of these threads made a little loop outside the knitting and was about to tuck it in neatly when I thought it was like being ‘undone’ in passion so I have left it! LOL.

The white and silver Slug is knit with pure white bamboo yarn with white wool mix yarn and a beautiful silver fibre yarn. The fibres look white in the photos but they are actually silver white. I stuffed this one lightly so it is soft and more feminine.

The black and gold one I made with black bamboo yarn with bright gold lurex yarn and a dull gold fibre yarn. I stuffed it more firmly and made it slightly bigger than the white and silver slug.

What a joy – these Feng Shui Slugs practically made themselves! Beautiful energy.

Darling Donkey

The thing I really love about donkeys is their VERY LARGE EARS. Darling De la Creme Donkey is an excellent listener for little ones. And he’s warm and comforting being stuffed with pure wool.

Let’s reminice for a moment about candlewick blankets from the 1960’s. While I hadn’t intended to make a candlewick style pig, here she is! Beautifully soft and snuggly!

Natural hand knit toys

Hand made hedgehog, rear view!

Hand made hedgehog, rear view!

Don’t get me wrong, I am not against polyester in any way and definitely not against polyester filling; it has a lot of benefits not least affordability. But, hello, there is just no comparison (em, let’s leave the easy laundry factor to one side for a minute!) with pure wool as a filling for natural hand knit toys.

I only use pure wool stuffing like Merino roving for all LullabyLily knit darlings. It sculpts beautifully, has a warmth to it, it is cosy and dense but squishy too. It was once a living fibre. It is comforting. And at LullabyLily we like comforting.
