It has been a stellar Sunday. The music has flowed between new jazz and chaotic k-pop, finishing up with
French hip-hop. I have completed a swatch for the Bluebells and Honeycomb sweater that is changing shape
in my mind, should it be baggy and comfy or structured and fitted? It has been interesting removing the
pressure to produce and perform. Admittedly, this is the core of being successful- maintaining momentum
and meeting the demands of market trends and definitely getting ahead of them. I had to catch myself
because doing that is the surest way to lose myself.
I gave the rest of my world my attention. The weather has shifted from wonderfully hot to unyieldingly
scorching, and now it is beautiful, cool, and predictably autumn. I sit at my desk and work on sizing and
dimensions with the windows open as it prepares to rain for the first time in over a month. I've befriended
She lets me know ahead of time when a storm is coming because she moves to a spot where the wind and
rain cannot touch her. She stays usually in broad daylight and keeps me company when I'm gardening or
just watching the natural world move. I do not feel bad or ashamed anymore for stepping away from
knitting after our conversations.
Being able to breathe while loving something is natural and invites longevity to your passion.
Sitting in accessible spaces also lets those around me know that they have my attention. What you never
want to do is disturb a knitter's stitch count. Without having to worry about knitting, I can breathe a bit
As it stands, I am super stoked about this project. I love pairing daring yarns with a natural backdrop- now.
For the longest, I avoided variegated yarns because they were so unpredictable. I was not a fan of surprises
of this sort. I've loosened up since then. Pooling does not frighten me anymore. lol This project
places The Spunky Sheep in the starring role. It is exciting what is to come and I cannot wait to
share the finished product.
Today has been a good day.
