Work In Progress Wednesday - {25-01-12} Balance

Morning Wednesday :D

Frist off I am pleased to say that I have made more progress on my Cardigan, really, REALLY want to get it finished, it should have been completed weeks ago! {I STILL have Phoenix’s one to complete *sigh*}
At the moment, I am trying to find a balance, you know when you discover something new; it excites and inspires you while totally consuming you at the same time?! Well that’s where I am at with the doll
My little Vampire
 customising, to the point that I am even dreaming about my next projects lol
My head is just spinning with ideas, and I feel a bit torn and almost guilty for neglecting my yarn, as I have a long list of knitting/crochet projects plus sewing projects, Doll carving projects, and yet I am not getting anything done because I don’t know where to start. {Starting to feel creative over load lol}
Which is why I am so thankful for the arrival of my un dyed yarn {squeee} means I can just take a few days and get lost in colours and centre myself, I REALLY love dyeing, for me it’s a creative release, when I dye yarn it’s all free form, I don’t have a plan, I just run with it and its quite exhilarating and liberating at the same time, the only down side of course is most of the time I can’t recreate the skeins I love lol but that’s the beauty of hand painted yarn.
Right well I have 60 skeins to play with, I will be back Friday with sneak preview :D {if you follow me on facebook and instagram, brace yourself  for a yarn porn spam over the next few days :D}
For now head over to Tamis for more wonderful works of progress!

  3. I know exactly what you mean, I've just started spinning and it's all I want to do, bit I have so much knitting to do, plus spinning is not something you can pick up and put down. It's difficult to know what to do next!

  4. I know just what you mean about the creative overload---sometimes I just end up stashing all the craft stuff and reading for a while to calm my brain! Anyway, I look forward to seeing the yarn porn on Friday, so much. :D

  7. I definitely like the idea of dyeing yarn to get back into your groove. (I'll be on the look-out for the yarn porn!) I am a notorious list writer, and that *sometimes* keeps me from overloading, but some days are better than others. =P
