Those are the words a dear knitting friend wrote on her blog this morning. She is creating an art project just for herself with intention & focus.
It has been a long, long time since I have created anything for myself with intention. The focus is sometimes there when I am creating but for a long time now I have been choosing easy projects, easy patterns (for my skill level), and 90% of what I have made I have given away. I have designed a few things here & there over the last year but nothing that I’ve done anything with really.
I started a sweater for myself about a month ago, got bored and knit 6 gift shawls instead. I love my ideas for the sweater it’s just simple and something I have wanted but not found in other patterns. But it doesn’t take intention or focus the way I perceive the meaning of those 2 words.
I am going to focus my thoughts on Intention. The Knitting Olympics are coming up and that has always been a time for me to push myself. I want to design & knit a sweater for myself. I have the yarn chosen, the pattern is still a little hazy but I am hoping it will become clear.
I used to use my focus & intention on photography but since losing all my equipment in the storage unit I lost all interest.
Huh, that made me think of sewing. Quilting, more specifically. That may be the outlet I am looking for.
More thinking I am thinking.
