Simon … the Doorstop

My belle-mère had visited Corsica recently and in her travels there, aside from visiting numerous essential oil distilleries in the countryside (apparently, Corsica is known for its essential oils), she also quite unexpectedly visited an atelier that sold their own homespun wool.  She sweetly thought of me and brought me home three skeins of pure lana corsa.

This wool, however, is different from any wool I’ve crochet or knit with – it has the feel of a rough cord.  There are bits and pieces of what looks like straw scattered here and there throughout the skeins which renders itself a not too desirable material to use in a piece of clothing!  I couldn’t figure out what project I’d use this rough, albeit beautiful, wool for until I came across this lovely book .

Although the intention of these adorable stuffed animals is for soft, squishy children’s toys, I thought I would use my unwearable lana corsa to create a sweet doorstop!

I should have Simon finished very soon … it’s a nice quick project.

Happy Wednesday, dear friends! XX
