Repeats, they're good for dancing, but after a while. . .
Around the world, around the world...around the world, around the world...
You may not know this about me, the 70's rocker, bleacher creature, with a little country mixed in girl likes techno. Yes you read that right, techno.
Daft Punk, The Chemical Brothers, Apex Twin, Kraftwerk, I love them all. I love the electronic sounds, the beats, the lyrics, or lack of lyrics, the noise.
This morning I heard Daft Punks "Around the World" on Spotify, and couldn't help by finally (really, it took me this long) noticed how many times they sing "Around the World," 144 times on the album version and 80 times on the radio cut.
Now here's a lesson on how my brain works. . .listening to the repeats of "Around the World" made me think about how many times I've knit my favorite shawl. My mind works in mysterious ways. . .it has to, to make that connection!
I love this shawl pattern, I've knit it so many times that I no longer need the pattern. By making slight changes to the yarn, you create a completely different look.
I can't help myself, I feel compelled to keep working with this pattern. It's so beautiful, it's so easy to remember, and everyone loves it.
By making slight changes to the pattern, you have a whole new look!
But after two years straight, of using the same pattern as a base for my knit shawls, I needed to do something different. Venture out and try something new.
It's good to stretch your creativity.
I still love Daft Punk, and will always listen to "Around the World" "Indo Silver Club" and "Alive."
But it's good to throw a little Southern Culture on the Skids "Liquored up and Lacquered Down" in the mix every once in a while!
