Sunday Musings: Project Photos and Thoughts

As promised in yesterday’s post, here are photos of my finished crocheted Spring Petals Scarf, a free pattern by Ragamuffin,( I forgot to mention this pattern in my earlier posts 🥺).  This is a simple pattern and it can by tweaked in size by adding additional stitches.  For my scarf, I added 20 more stitches so I could have a wider scarf.

I can wrap it around once or …. 

Pair it  nicely with my shawl cuff I purchased from  my friend Zonda.  Check out her Etsy shop,  JaneZ Place by zknitter, for a great collection of shawl cuffs.

I am still working on my toe up sock.  Honestly not much knitting has been happening lately as my knitting mojo is rather shot but hopefully that will change soon.

Last week I started my Emily Scarf  and I hope to work more on it this coming week.  My goal is to have it finished in two weeks, which is quite doable for me.

Thoughts …  
I have come to realize I have too many “creative” loves.   This is not a bad

thing, it just means that I have many things I want to explore and try.  I personally think when you focus on just one thing, it’s an easy recipe for burning out. 

I have been crocheting for over 44 years, knitting for over 25 years and spinning for over 11 years.  Let’s just say the fiberarts have been a big part of my life for a very long time, which means I’m rather weary of it. 

I’m at a stage in my life where want to explore other things, mainly embroidery, sewing and art.  This doesn’t mean I’m giving up the fiber-arts, it just means I need a change.  I want to explore other creative endeavors and not be so focused on one thing, and one thing only.  

I do get quite distracted when I go into my craft room, too many fun things to make and to explore, leaving with the thought of  “what to I want to accomplish today”.  With this simple thought in mind, the possibilities become endless and each day I have the possibility to create something new and explore other crafty venues.

So my thoughts…. Change is good, change is healthy and change always gives us a breath of fresh air.  Without change, I feel that I would become dull, and unimaginative, even stagnant.  So for me, having one creative love ( or outlet ) is good but having many is even better.

Until next time, be creative.
