I’m finding a nice rhythm to capturing ideas before they flit away on the wings of ADD – not just with my crafting but the writing too. Taking a moment to simply sketch a few lines and write a word or two has increased my productivity and sleeping with my journal close by to capture those Giller Prize worthy phrases (lol!) helps too.
The positive reinforcement of being at my LYS when a customer who’d purchased “Les Cloches Cannelées“, and was at the store for her yarn was amazing! My Bestie works at Yarn Forward, the talented and gorgeous Francine of “Fancy That” and she has been huge in helping get the word out. I’m looking forward to sharing a picture of her scarf when it’s finished.
Being there on a day that all yarn was 20% off was inspirational and dangerous. Dangerous to my pocketbook but inspirational for test knitting a combination pattern that’s been percolating. I love crochet almost as much as knitting and often combine the two crafts. This latest idea may make it to a pattern format if all goes well. I’ve begun with a crochet motif and rounding out the idea with knitting. The Berroco “Folio” that I couldn’t say no to, is a treat to work with. Soft, light and warm; it works up beautifully airy on the recommended pins.
