Trapped in the realm of boredom today I am feeling blah...in a funk...etc. I have so many ideas of what I want to do...what I want to create with my yarns. I have so much emotion that I want to convey with my pieces. Many times I'm afraid that if I pour all my emotions into one piece it will be frightening or that the message won't be clear and may turn folks away from me or my designs. I just need a muse to bring out the voice of my spirit through my hooks and needles. Freeform crochet and knitting has crossed my mind....it allows me to express myself without any commitment, in a sense that I won't have to re-create the piece again...it will be unique. I have been spinning yarn lately. I purchased a Fat Fiber sample box a year ago and a spindle and began experimenting with different yarns. I have to say that my favorites are alpaca, merino top and tussah silk. Here's a few of goodies I have spun so far:
Maybe I'll create something spectacular!!! Or maybe my new handspun will just sit and keep the rest of my stash company...who knows. I tell ya, if I don't get out of this funk I may just resort to making something simple using an ordinary pattern...perish the thought!
