|This Hobbes wasn't built in a day|
It's cute, people talk about "fearless knitting". Trying something new, a technique you're not familiar with. Still, with each stitch, you're investing yourself, your time, your effort. I know I care FAR too much about the outcome of my endeavors instead of the process. I suppose this accounts for me spinning my wheels in life for so long, partially at least.
|Fingerless gloves for Kathy|
Today for example, I was mulling over what to post. Sure I have one finished project, another pair of Vancouver Fog fingerless gloves, this time for Kevin's mom, Kathy. But other than that I've only got a number of WIPS. First, I've got my little crochet amigurumi Hobbes. It's my first attempt at amigurumi, and I'm also learning how to do "jogless stripes" at the same time. Second, I've begun the first stages of experimenting in order to make my own patterns. Finally there's the project that I've been so hopeful and fearful of, making my own site where I can sell things that I've created. Figuring out what to put where, the subtle nuances of googlecheckout, potential policies, and what in the world I'll actually put up have been most of my focus. Somehow I'm making small steps in each direction. Wish me well?
