…back into knitting, big time. I had a word with myself, and went and ordered a load of natural wool tops from World of Wool. I don’t know if it’s right for my project, so I will need to experiment, but this is the start of a creative journey, something that’s been missing for too long.
Why on earth I chose to do it now, when I am busier than ever, I don’t know. I checked back at my last knitting notes, when I was trying to source some alternative giant natural yarns, and I was shocked to find that I wrote them two years ago. The article I stumbled across the other day, about knitting being really good for you, was undoubtedly needling away at my subconscious.
I can’t wait for my new yarn to arrive. Actually it’s not even yarn yet, I will have to make it into yarn myself. I will felt it into the size I need to fit the needles I have, and then test its strength and softness. I’ve never custom-made my own yarn before so this is another dimension.
It’s time to stop prioritising everything else, get something on the needles and see where it takes me.
