Change of Perspective

Knitting Blog

Sometimes to move on in life or knitting you need a change of perspective. I’ve made a rule for myself long time ago – when it gets overwhelming, just get busy, look around you and try to see things from a different point of view. In knitting changing things fuels creativity and the flow of new ideas for me. I love switching between fibers and textures, this diversity inspires me so much and I am grateful that we, knitters, are so lucky these days to enjoy this abundance of choice when it comes to yarn.

After finishing Wings sweater (will share it with you in July!!) in gorgeous blend of plant fibers in sport weight yarn, I was craving for something woolly and chunky. My Crazy Sexy Wool skeins fit perfectly. If you remember, several months ago I was planning to make a crochet cowl with it, but somehow I kept postponing it and a week ago I was struck with another idea that is still in swatching stage, but I think it might be “it”! I can’t describe how much I love this feeling when you finally “know” what this skein of yarn should become. Sometimes it takes me months to catch this feeling, but I decided never make something just for the sake of making, but wait for that perfect match of the yarn and idea.

I am sure that this idea was sparkled by Daisy yarn, so delicate and drapey that my next project HAD to be something chunky and super cozy for new Fall knitting season. My hands love this contrast of fibers, it is a great tactile experience to switch between such different yarns!

Have a beautiful day today!

    Alina, I love the way your brain works! I am a lover of texture as well and knowing that it can take you weeks or months to let the yarn “speak” to you makes me feel so much better that I am in good company. And your photos are wonderful.
    Thank you for taking time to share your creative process.

      Thank you so much, Barbara! I feel like taking time with the yarn is really worth it, love this feeling when the pattern and yarn make the perfect match!

    So chunky and fun! I love seeing these and thinking about allowing for change rather than always doing the same-old.
