There are times when we feel out of harmony with our surroundings and feel confused and disoriented. Sometimes these moments will last a day, sometimes they may last for weeks.
Last week was my week to feel like that. No matter what I touched, it just didn't seem to click for me. My dyeing was flat, I wasn't happy with the way the front band went on my vest and weaving on that old loom........just not happening. Sometimes I try to do too many things at once and end up not doing any of them well. When that happens, I need to take a breath, write a few lists and then focus. (learning to live with ADD 101...LOL)
After taking a look at Judy's blog Friday, I realized that I needed to get my butt in gear and focus on getting this sock yarn and fiber dyed. We are sharing vending space at the NETA spa in a few weeks, so this weekend, I took a breath, fired up the dyepots again and finally......that mojo came back. In between batches, I played with the new loom.....what a difference! Fussing as much as I did with the old loom, really taught me a lot about how a loom works, so once I managed to get this new one set up, I felt very comfortable with the way it was working. This tencel/rayon warp has been a pleasure to weave.
I even managed to seam up the cabled vest during the superbowl. My fiber work combined with the 7 inches of fresh snow made for a nice weekend :-). I hope you enjoyed yours as much as I enjoyed mine!
