There is just too much stimulation and what I need is peace and quiet.
I think this color is really soothing and if I knit with intention I hope I will not repeat the mistake that required the after thought life line and the ripping of 8 rows. Once I get past this bit the rest goes really fast. It would be nice to have a new piece of clothing.
My other projects are all coming along a little bit at a time. I started the compass rose on Wednesday with Franklin. I'm working really had to get good tension as that has eluded me in past structural pieces. It's a bit hard on my hands though, so I'm pacing myself.
I also worked on the bead museum tile yesterday and that is also coming along in a direction I'm happy with. Not too much more until I can call that one done.
I have a couple of masks to make for someone who requested them. I actually find mask making very satisfying. It's a small project with pretty fabric and easy stitching.
When I began blogging at the beginning of this month, I talked about how much I miss travel and that remains so very true. If I had to describe two things at the very core of my being, it would be making and traveling, and making while traveling is even better. I have many shawls that were done on planes and trains in foreign lands. I have many fibers and beads acquired in those travels and I have a treasure trove of inspiration photos from those places.
