Finally, some crafting is happening around here again.
I just completed the little sweater/shrug above. It's so tiny, very short with cap sleeves, and I used fairly substantial yarn, so really, it shouldn't have taken this long to make, but life has been so busy! It's a free pattern I've used several times now and I love it so much that I recommend it to everyone I know (including you, dear readers!). It is so versatile, so quick and easy, in the seamless style I love because there's no need for sewing up. The shrug even fits my older daughter, which is a relief, because that means this will be able to be worn for at least several years.
I have needed a creative fix. It's so hard not to have that kind of time to create something with my own hands without constant interruptions. I've found myself turning to photography more lately because I get instant results – and I love it (more on that in a future post) – but oh how I have missed working with fabric and yarn and tangible loveliness.
Do you have a strong desire to create? If so, what is your favorite way to indulge your creativity, and how do you make the time and space in your life to do so?
