He was summoned. Summoned by a 12 year old boy, and he came. His purposes are unclear. His origins are a haze. His methods of travel a mystery. He communicates inaudibly, yet clearly. When he is present, colours seem brighter, rooms seem larger, questions seemed answered, songs more melodic. Smells are more vivid, and the breezes more vibrant. When he is absent, all lapses into a blur.
Technical notes: Deaux was created from Fearless Fibers merino sock yarn on a size one circular bamboo needle. He was created from the Knitted Babes pattern by Claire Garland. He was knit in the round, top down, like a sock. I sewed on the eyes while the head was still in process, in order to make the sewing easier. I put a wooden dowel inside him for stability, then stuffed him with wool stuffing from The Magic Cabin. After stuffing, he was kitchenered shut along his bottom. His arms and legs were made by picking up stitches in the right spot and then knitting icord.
