Crocheted Dorid Nudibranch August 11, 2007

Posted by barn owl in crochet, molluscs.

I’ve made several of these dorid nudibranchs, using the hyperbolic crochet technique to produce the waviness; they don’t correspond to any particular species, but rather provide a way to experiment with different types of yarns, color combinations, and beads. Most of them are about 8″ long. Because of the colors, I call this one the Mardi Gras Nudibranch-the multicolored yarn is Mosaic Twist rum raisin, from Yarn Bee (on sale for $0.99 at Michaels!).

One and a half hours of Iyengar yoga this morning, with lots of different poses and work on breathing into different regions of the back and ribcage in each, as preparation for pranayama. Followed by a light lunch, and then swimming at the natatorium for 1.0 miles, alternating breast stroke and crawl. Now it’s time to tend to the whole wheat pizza crust dough, which I plan to top with fresh tomatos, basil, olives, red onion, and goat cheese.
