It’s amazing to me, creativity that is. See, I’m a Taurus, I like to keep things organized, neat and tidy. It’s just my nature. When I have an event to organize, I’ll sit and think thru all the steps necessary to make this event successful.
I literally sit stare out into space. On the outside, it looks like I’m just a space cadet. But in my mind, I’m thinking thru whatever event I’m working on. Then once I have a plan formulated I’ll spend time writing it all down.
But with knitting can’t seem do that. I’ve tried to have the same discipline that I have in my other work. I’ll list out what I want to create, write down how much time it will take and then plot out the steps to take to finish the product. I can see the final product in my mind, the colors, its texture, the shape.
But something happens when the yarn hits the needles.
It’s magic really. It seems that when I’m knitting, the project takes on a life of its own. I can’t control it, the needles have their own agenda. They see the garment completely different.
I just have to remember to let go, and let the needles do their stuff. It always
turns out so incredible when I do!
