Sharing this and that I've been up to during my self-imposed vacation and maybe some thoughts along the way.
I figure it'll become a blanket. Monkey Brain tried to get a hold of me and I started off road looking at MANY different patterns for making these little suckers. But I'm backing off on that. Just playing with the colors and enjoying the classic pattern for the moment. I don't need to be the world's foremost expert on granny squares. Ha!
The honest simplicity of crochet and felted vessels is appealing. Crochet is making sense to me right now.
I'm using Debbie Stoller's Full O Sheep for the grannies and some wool I found in the craft store for the vessels. Where do you folks get your yarn? The local independents seem to carry only high end (pricey) and the craft store selection is limited (though it looks enormous). I've found Jimmy Beans Wool on line.
And just thinking that looking at too much stuff gives me Monkey Brain. Did you read The Artists' Way? Do you remember the media fast? No books, TV, radio (and I'd add internet). Julia Cameron is right on the money. Too Much Information. I'm on a semi-fast because I can't stop reading novels. Nope.
Just an aside: I love putting things into the Unruly Posts category.
