    An odd request............. no really, this IS odd

    As many of you know, I dress my friend's shop window. For spring I am planning a decorating theme. I have some lovely fabric to make a spring quilt, I have some veryyyyy shabby chic 3 step ladders and some left over rolls of wallpaper to dot around.

    But what I really really need is a knitting pattern for a paint can and a paint brush! Oh yes I do!

    Kay sells wool in her shop......actually you can't move for wool........so I like my window to reflect that as well as the quilting stuff she sells. The window is always done as a surprise for her....... I have total artistic control and I do so like to make her shake her head at me.

    Now, I do NOT knit, in the same way as I do NOT clean windows but I have a friend who does and if I can find a pattern she would knit it for me (I hope....haven't asked her yet).

    I have looked on the net and couldn't find anything other than the Joyce Greenhowe decorator pattern. I knitted this many years ago when I did knit and it is too small. I need a life size paint tin and brush and I doubt if my friend would be able to enlarge the pattern. I know I couldn't even if I DID knit still.

    So there you go people, I lay down the challenge.

    What if you got a paint can and wrapped it with wool yarn

      Is this a stuffed paint can & brush or a cover for an actual paint can?

      Before you speak,
      T - is it TRUE?
      H - is it HELPFUL?
      I - is it INSPIRING?
      N - is it NECESSARY?
      K - is it KIND?

        I'd knit/crochet a sleeve to slip the can into then, making sure said can is empty, take yarn and make it look like it is spilling out of the can. Replace the bristles on an old paintbrush w/yarn to match!! Viola!

            I did a google search and found this site with some paint related items (artist paint brush and tube of paint and pencil) ODDknit - Free Knitting Patterns - Paint Brush

            Would that work instead?
