Project Spectrum is coming around again. This year the theme is Cardinal Directions and Lolly has put together a group of themes that look really very inspiring. Go read about it.
I am already looking forward to March and considering how I might play with some Idea of North – which is something that might cause Gill to cough 🙂
There is much there to play with, either on the fibre front or in paper play or photography. I might even write this year, as I feel the urge to pick up my pen again overwhelming me from time to time.
Where will I find the time, though?
I am struggling to see how I might embrace PS in my knitting at this stage – this will require some thought. I do though find myself already excited at the notion of picking up my camera once more, and beginning an extended photo essay.
What I do know is that although a nicely yoked Icelandic sweater with shades of green in the colour work would fit perfectly in to this first segment – I shall not be working such a revolting garment just in order to fit in. PS must bend with me and fit my interests and tastes and my schedule. Ultimately it is more a question of raising my own creative awareness, rather than forcing myself into any mould. One thing I can do is review my Ravelry queue to see if I might change its order, or bring a new colour perspective to my pre-conceived project ideas.
I have already twigged that “East” might just be a very good excuse to blow some cash on some Noro yarn… and I believe I have just the right airy project in mind.
For completeness, and your information, the reminder of this year’s PS phases look like this:
