slow stitching, first drafts, and revisions
The contrast color for the shawl wasn't working for me. I have contemplated taking it off the needles but I am going to let it sit for awhile. There are plenty of other projects on the needles.
I started to applique my orange peels but the shapes got too wonky so I think I will try another method.
Sometimes my fiber projects are like first drafts and need to be revised. I am trying not to let this hold me up. I have been visiting Nikki's blog lately and many of her thoughts on writing and knitting and learning resonate with me. I am only just now realizing that sewing, knitting, and writing have a lot in common. How wonderful to be able to slow down and let the craft emerge and perhaps, teach us something. What are your fiber projects teaching you these days?
Be sure to slow down long enough to visit Kathy's weekly Slow Stitching post.
