when i get this close to the end of a design
it’s like when the wind changes just before it rains.
things begin to look different.
instead of focusing on individual stitches
i start to see them as a collective whole.
and i can almost smell the excitement
that i feel
or maybe i’m just smelling the sweat
from getting this close to the end of the project and
this close to the end of the skein at the very same time.
whatever the exact reason for the feeling
(and whatever the smell actually is)
mostly it’s just a buzzing of excitment
as i wait to block, seam,
and see exactly what it’s become.
‘changes’ taken from 8:1 of ecclesiastes.
‘mondays with mrs. crosby’ is an ongoing series of posts
(to be posted on mondays, of course),
detailing a current collaboration between mrs. crosby yarns
and me. stay tuned.
