Since the mad splurge of Christmas Creating has settled down, and between bouts of ear infections, working and visiting family, I haven’t had much in the way of creative energy. Or time to sit still. Or be awake without working, or pain. But it is ok. Tis the season, ya?
So, in an effort not to become an uncreative sloth in my moments of sacred stillness, aka night time netflix hours, I started detangling some of the wool sent home with me during a family visit. And that did the trick. Once I got that wool in my fingers, I was transfixed. I could feel the healing powers of the fibres flowing through me. Or maybe that was just the actual feelings of relaxing. Anyway whatever it was, it was good for me.Meditative. Restful but also awakening. Thing is, I am still pretty worn out, not sure I have chased all the bugs out of our system. So what I am able to come up with right now is not exactly best kind. But I carry on. I Must! Try to tell me to put down the knitting needles, I dare you!
Which is really all just a mad rambling introductory excuse for the lame attempts at knitting up some little thingies that I will now show off.
Scrappy Woolie Coffee Sleeve;
and last but certainly not least;
Heart Shaped Thingie
I will find a purpose for all of these little treasures. Oh yes I will. Perhaps for once I will just use them for what I wanted them for, and love them and keep them all for myself!
