i’m thinking.

i’m dreaming. of a cold december night, brave families munching big gingerbread krampusse, and waiting for a dozen or so of the same — life-sized, bigger than life-sized — to menace them in the cold.

i want to knit, and make, and sew and craft with others throughout the year, in preparation for this event. i want to hear more stories and history and see more images, old and new, of this Christmas Devil.

i would love to be part of an event that broke off into other events, so that everybody had their own kind of fun — indoors, outdoors, with kids and emphatically without. i want drums, and possibly a robot. puppets would be good.

does anybody have any experience with leather mask-making? ben and i definitely plan to be krampusse, and i have an idea for how our masks should go (primarily knitted of course) but will need some leather understructure.
