Sudafed commission

Hello! After (another) long break from posting anything, I’ve found the will to blog again.

Apart from reminding myself that I started a blog in the first place to prove that there’s no lichen growing in my fur I’ve realised that there are a few important (to me) and maybe interesting (to you?) things to share from last year, before even contemplating what’s going down in 2014.

So here’s one of them: a knitting commission.

Last summer I was very excited to be approached by an animation company to knit a piece for a Sudafed advert. They wanted to repeat the handmade stop-motion animation style of their previous ad, which very delightfully used a green ball of wool to represent some mucus in a knitted cross-section of a head, grey french-knitted brains and all.

So, I was commissioned to knit the piece below, a much larger-than-life packet of “mucus relief day and night capsules” in 4ply intarsia. Yes, some adverts really are made like this!

And here’s the advert itself –
