I have stuff going on, believe me.
The KAL with Ruth, is in full progress. I am way behind her. She is also usuing her own handspun yarn,fabulous! The girl is flyin'! The pattern is Multnomah by Kate Elsa. The beautiful yarn is Wollmeise in Fratello that I won from Nova's birthday giveaway. I am using size 3 HiyaHiya circulars, (HiyaHiya is my favorite).
I was waiting for the perfect pattern that would show off the beautiful shades of this yarn. I think I found it. While the shawl is being worked on, I am also working on socks. Yes, I am switching back and forth between projects.
Ruth's super purple socks are almost to the heel flap. The purples and blues in the yarn are just insane, almost iridescent. They are so her! My Port Ludlow socks, have their heel and now I am decreasing for the foot.
The pattern, the yarn, love everything about these. My photo does not even come close to doing the colors in this yarn justice. It is indeed a far cry from my normal shades, goes to show you how many you love when you just try them.
Working on three projects may sound stressful, normally it would be. I have decided to take a different approach and I find it to be working for me. I am just enjoying the process of creating. I am not worrying about deadlines, I am just going with the flow. Ironically things seems to get accomplished more if I think in those terms. An inspiring movie or show always helps too.
Instead of watching the movies, I watch the Appendices. I have always been interested in watching others creative process, it motivates me. It is awe-inspiring to watch how someone can create a huge statue out of foam and make it look realistic. The craftsmanship and details that went into this trilogy are just insane!
What motivates you to create? Is there a process, a location, or a movie that aides you in your crafting?
