You’ll recall that this whole star thing started as a way to make it snow. It still hasn’t worked, but apparently my furnace heard about my concerns and wanted in on the act. So last night, when it was just the tiniest bit nippy outside (even if it wasn’t snowing) he stopped working. Well not quite, he kept blowing air, he just stopped heating that air before blowing it on me. Very refreshing.
I responded with stoicism and wool. And another star.
My office windows are now full, so it’s likely time to stop. I’m sure the snow will arrive any day now.
And because you guys really do seem enamored of these, I’ve done a bit of looking around, and I’ve found a few more links for you. Here is someone who has made them with just tissue paper and has instructions for a few basic stars in English. Here is a place to buy the sort of paper I’m using (or something close to it, I’ve not ordered this so I can’t say for sure, but it sounds the same). And should your own dexterity/time/energy not quite be up to the task, here is a place to buy the completed stars.
Now this evening, my goal really is to get the second of those cabled socks on the needles. With any luck at all, we should return you to your regularly scheduled woolly goodness very shortly.
