Simply imperfect... my spinning, my knitting, my pottery... and it warms my heart, makes my spirit dance with rectless abandon, and frees my soul.
Sometimes you just let the mind go ... work with only emotion ... don't overthink ... resist a plan ... just move forward to the next step ... and find ...joy at the end of the ride.
I did with my personal yarn bowl which has guided me to a whole new approach to my pottery design.
Super big hugs to Scarlet at @huckleberryknits.
I walked into her booth and my attention went to this roving. I started to question it as I am really not "a red-lover" (edit: unless we are talking about my van, "chili pepper"), but I stopped thinking, put my hand to the fiber and thought, "perfect". Carried my treasure home in my usual chest of fiber fest treasures. Reached in the bin and this rope was in my hand. Spun it up thin, no questioning. Stared at it on the bobbin for a month. It called for chain plying. I have been researching patterns for a much bigger project. Landed on the #pineconecowl
Went for it and knit it in 2 nights. I am overjoyed. Will most definitely be my goto piece for fall walks, trekking around with our pups, and most likely it will see some cross country action in the coming year. Hugs to ya, Scarlet. With your gentle nudge I am finding great joy in the color red. Much gratitude to Alexa. Your pattern has stirred a number of creative ideas for future knitting projects. I am finding the essence of inspiration can be unleashed using a process as a guide.
