Okay, so this post was already ready to go, but I just needed to press the lil ole button. Since I wasn’t home all day to do that, I posted it a tad late. I don’t count it as breaking my NY resolution…so THERE.
The wonderfully beautiful and talented Samantha Stewart taught me how to knit, and here’s what came of it. I made two scarfs and now I’m working on my third (although I haven’t had enough time to really get it going). When I go to the craft store (my absolute favorite type of store…just for future reference) I go through every single aisle. Then, I get to the yarn and get entranced by all the colors. I am absolutely CAPTIVATED by colors…not even joking. No. Seriously…I aint lyin’. I literally stare at the long aisle of colors and sometimes get soooo overwhelmed by the vast array of choices between what seems to me as the most beautiful rainbow selection of yarns…and I’m STUMPED. I don’t know which to choose. They’re ALL gorgeous to me. Usually it takes me around a half hour to an hour to decide (ok…don’t judge…Maybe I’m the way some women are with shoes…except substitute shoes with anything that comes in more than 7 colors) I’m a bit indecisive…so shoot me. I’m positive Omar can vouch for that bit of info about me. The last time I told him I was going to Joann’s to pick up the turqouise yarn I ran out of…WELL…let’s just say he already knew what was going to happen. He called me to ask if I got home yet, and I said, “Uh, almost.” Then, when I met up with him, he asked, “So, what’d you get at Joann’s?” I just dipped my head down with a shy grin….”Um…” He smiled. Because he knew I probably had about 10 balls of yarn. My excuse was, “Hey, they were on sale…” And to be fair, they WERE. BUT, I only got 5 spools of yarn.
Anything artsy in a craft store…art supplies, paint (Don’t even get me started on how many tubes of oils and acrylics I have), pens, markers…you name it. I’ve got every selection of the color spectrum. I even feel drawn to the towel aisle at Walmart or Target because all the colors are so neatly folded. Sometimes they have really unique colors. Maybe, perhaps, that’s why I was an Art major.
Anywhoo… the very first scarf I made is on the left (turqouise) and the one on the right is my second (I learned how to pearl…so I made a pattern!) I’m so happy I learned!! Ever since I was a wee little girl watching my aunt knit…I wanted to learn. It’s so fun and therapeutic! It helps me be at peace and just relax. Sort of like reading. A nice peaceful read w/out too much suspense…because then I just end up reading way past the time I told myself I would go to bed.
BTW PHOTO LA was off the hook…fo sheezy…I will share tomorrow!!!!
ah…I’m still running off the high of such amazing photographers and theirwork….ah!! Again, I say…. AHHHH
