At this time of year you can’t beat a good book and some knitting.
A trip to the library before Christmas yielded a haul of no less than 3 books by Philippa Gregory. Perfect winter reading. Oh was I happy!
Last year ended in a frantic rush to finish all the craft projects- knitting, sewing, crochet, decorations etc etc- .In fact I felt like I was on a production line .This wasn’t being creative. I am not certain in my anxiety to get things done I even enjoyed them over much.
So I have thought a lot. I observed how I started a new knitting project the moment Christmas was over. I knitted so fast I scarcely took in what I was doing, how it felt to be actually knitting a garment for a precious little girl.
So I made the conscious decision to SLOW DOWN, to feel the yarn ,to look at the colours, to enjoy what I am making, what matters it if it takes 4 weeks instead of 3 to complete.
And that is the one resolution I have made myself this year, to enjoy the process of making, to be more creative in my crafts.
See how pretty these colours are. Yarn is Sirdar Crofter.
