New Directions





So, the pink did not work out.  So I will have to go back to it later when I have more focus.  It is humid and hot here and it has been playing havoc with my brain.

So I figured a change of sensory input would help get some creative juices going.  The above yarn sitting on the thyme is CASHSILK, Linea Pura by Lana Grossa.  It is a luxurious 15% silk, 15% cashmere, 30% viscose bamboo and 40% polyamide.

This is the most wonderful yarn.  It feels like liquid silk running through my fingers.  It is thick and knits up quickly and I have failed at the gauge I need 3 times now...but that is okay.  I want to make something I can throw on for the beach and I found a cool pattern but it felt stiff to me so I changed the needle size and added a few repeats in theory.

I wanted to show you something.  But I couldn't get enough done after ripping it out so many times.

This week I got the Chariot as my tarot card.  Usually this is a card of choices but in this deck it is a direction has been given, guidance has been offered and you are firmly on your path.

If you ask me what this actually points to I would have trouble answering you...yet...I feel this sense of rhythm in my life.  I know what needs to be done and it gets done.  The things I couldn't due because of time or limitations...are getting done.  Everything is different, yet, on the outside it seems nothing has really changed.  But the little things...they really do make a difference.  And that is what I think my card was trying to tell me.

When you take essences, they peel away layers and at first you can't always tell they are working. But then one day you wake up and everything is just a little different...you feel just a little off from what you felt the day before.  That is a layer being peeled away to reveal something new underneath.  Then this new layer becomes your new reality until that too is peeled away.  This keeps happening until you find the core, the answer or the meaning to it all.

In some areas of my life...I have reached this point of utter happiness that works in harmony with my goals and aspirations.  

Hugs and happy crafting,
