I received the annual report about my blog from WordPress. No surprise that the top hits were all on knitting pages, especially free patterns. Well and good. I put them here to share and am delighted when someone takes them. But that sort of presents a problem. I’m not knitting so much anymore, so there will be fewer knitting entries.
I started this blog to share my enthusiasm for knitting. The key is “share my enthusiasm.” So I have decided to just continue to do that and not worry. I am far from an expert at the things I am doing now, but in some ways that is a plus. My mistakes and uglies may be just the thing that encourages someone else to give it a go. The creative world I find myself in now with classes, flickr, and the blog world has certainly taught me that it is the journey that brings satisfaction, not the end product.
Here are some pictures of what I did over the holidays. Not everything. One of my resolutions is to take better pictures of my work. I am in the process of building a light box and will shoot some other things when it is finished.
Okay, I have to comment on this one. It is really ugly, but I learned a lot and believe I can do a better one the second time around. It was great fun to watch the colors run and to feel so free about it. Here’s the free video that I watched. Once I’ve done a better try, I’ll cut this one up and use it for other things. More about “other things” later.
This is still in progress. The grey background doesn’t work, so I will cut it off after I finish the handwork and may put it on black linen. I’ll tell you how I did it when it is finished.
Finally–for today anyway–
