I've got a yarn for you...

whipup

I'm taking the plunge and entering Whipup's Whiplash competition


The theme this week is yarn. I thought about it for a while but kept coming back to the story telling definition of yarn. So I made some lips, because without lips there can be no passing on of a yarn. They are made of yarn... and there's a yarn behind that too...

My Mum half-made a jumper in the 80s. She never finished it and it ended up in my knitting basket. When I needed red yarn quick-smart I found the sleeve of the jumper and sewed the lip shapes onto it.




And these lips could tell some stories - just look at the size of them! But they are also thoughtful. And wouldn't spread a yarn if you asked them not to.


These lips love the veggie patch and often spend the afternoon yarning to the snow peas... Ah, what a life...
