WIPs ... lots of things going on!

Today I'm embracing the fact I'm a true multi-crafter.  That's right, like many of you out there I have many projects going on all at once and wish at times I could find more time in the day to work on them all.  I've learned over the years  to work on what makes me happy at the moment, whether it's knitting, crocheting, spinning or art, I enjoy what I do and have learned that is what makes me "me".  



cre·a·tiv·i·ty   - the use of the imagination or original ideas, especially in the production of an artistic work. 
synonyms:  inventiveness, imagination, innovation, originality, individuality


Knitting:  I just finished the first sock to my pair of Los Monos Locos and plan to cast on the mate this evening.  I'm hoping to have this project finished soon. 

Also only needles is my Buttercup in Hempathy.  This has been with out a doubt the slowest knit I've ever worked on and honestly it's me.  I'm not much of one to love fingering to dk weight projects as they tend to move slowly for me.  All I need to do on this project is finish the body.  Hopefully this will get a little knitting love this weekend.




Spinning:  On my Ladybug is my Abundant Earth Fiber in Sugar Snap.  I'm really loving the green color and the specks of yellow.  As you can see I haven't made much progress, but I'm still spinning at least 15 minutes a day.  I need to work more on this as I have three more colors to spin for my Hap Cowl project.



This is the remainder of the Sugar Snap color.  I like to separate my roving into nice neat little fiber buns. It makes it easier for me to pick one up and start spinning.



Crochet:  I'm still working on my Quick Silver Shawlette in Knit Picks Palette.  I'm really enjoying this summer crochet project and find it rather relaxing.  The pattern is super easy to memorize and has been the perfect companion to my Audible book ... The Map of the Sky by Felix Palma.



Pen & Ink:  I have a love of drawing and I'm currently drawing in my small art journal.  I'm crazy about Zentangle, and Zentangle Inspired Art.  It's been a while since I've picked up my pen and have realized how much I've missed drawing.


I'm also working on a knitting bag using a fabric pen by Pentel.  Sadly they no longer make these pens so I've bought up as many as I can find.  I have a few more flowers to add and many something else ... a sheep, butterfly or ???




I'm finishing off this post with a wonderful quote that was shared on Instagram by a very dear friend of mine.  Many of us each day are bombarded with "drama", "negativity" and more.  Learn to surround yourself with positive creative people.  I know I have and my life is so much richer for doing that.




Until next time ~ happy crafting!
