Meiosis Scarf- Part 3 of 3

The finished layout.

 


After encasing the yarn in roving and wetting it out.

 


Midway through felting.

 


The finished shawl.

 


Some eggs in close-up...

 


...and some sperm.

 


The finished piece on a sunny day!

 


Well, here you have it...

...one of the strangest shawls you're ever likely to see! :)

Even my daughters think it's a little bit weird...

...and they don't believe me when I assure them that the average passer-by won't realize what it is at all...

...and will just think it's just some sort of random design!

I'm looking forward to testing my theory in a crowd of people...

...as soon as it finally cools off enough to wear it :)

Hahaha...Riet. I'll try to get a photograph of it 'in action' when one of my 'daughter-models' are home for a holiday.

I'd like to see it on a model as well. Interesting concept, it fits you.

Rachel said...

It does look dramatic and strange - I look forward to hearing your report on the crowd reaction to it!

I'm sure you are right and the average person wouldn't have any idea what the pattern means. Do show us a photo of it in action.

The true "fertility scarf". Pretty and strange all in one! ;)

Heather Woollove said...

I'll give you all a report when I get around to wearing it! :)
Kelly--Haha...fertility scarf!

Loco Lindy said...

You need to loan it to someone who needs the extra fertility luck! It is definitely unique, Heather!

Heather Woollove said...

Lindy--You're right...and see whether it works! :)

Awesome! This series would be a great museum installation, the art of science.

Heather Woollove said...

Mary--Thanks...but probably more like, "The art of weirdness!!" :)

Jeanette Nord said...

It`s fab! Don`t ever let anyone try to convince you otherwise. Looking forward to a pic of you wearing it in a crowd! Bet they will all look amazed!

Heather Woollove said...

Oh, Jeanette--you are such a sweetie!! XXO-

Vivian said...

I can't stop giggling at the thought of someone hearing "I'm wearing a shawl with sperm and eggs on it". Such a creative project!

Heather Woollove said...

Vivian--I know...it's quite a conversation starter!! :)
