It has been a little over 2 years since I first picked up knitting. I vividly remember my very first yarn I bought and I wrote about it way back when I just had started this blog.
I was so captivated by yarn and knitting and soon enough I decided that I wanted to demistify this mesmerizing craft. And so I did…
Over the past 2 years I have absorbed knitting knowledge like a thirsty sponge. I found myself buying all kinds of yarns, needles, notions, patterns and books… so many books!
I have been extremely focused on knitting and all there was to learn about knitting and yarn. Sure enough, several months after I learned how to knit I even knitted my own little fingerless gloves. And soon after that, I started to write out my little glove patterns.
I have explored lace knitting, sock knitting, sweater knitting, intarsia and cables.
Heck, I even started to design and write my own sweater patterns…
Allthough knitting still is my passion and absolutely #1 craft, I find myself pulled towards some other beautiful crafts out there. You may have noticed that at times, I buy fabrics and sewing patterns:
And as of late, I am very much drawn to paper… that looks like fabric.
Uh-oh… I am in deep deep trouble… I can already see a paper stash and a fabric stash growing in my yarnroom! What is a crafty gal to do, eh?
Without exactly knowing where this all is leading to, I can say this with certainty: all of these mediums, yarn, fiber, fabric and paper make me happy. It truly lifts my spirits when I set eyes on these wonderful, wonderful materials.
And I am going to focus on that what makes me happy and I am going to pursue that what ignites passion within me.
One last thing: Knitting still is my number one passion and always will be. It is just, that lately, I have been looking up from my knitting needles and I have noticed that there is so much more out there…
Thank you for reading and untill the next entry!
