The Maker’s Journey

Playing with wool or any other yarn-y medium is an art.  From shearing wool, cleaning, combing, spinning and down the line it all adds up to one glorious beautiful skein then project.

Is there a part of the journey that you adore?  Is there a part that you would skip?

When I start any project, I envision what I would look like in it, how it would feel, the style etc. So, the end is my ultimate goal.  I have soon learned to enjoy every step.  The slow, beautiful process that takes place.  It relaxes me and trains me to live a little slower.  Take time to smell the roses or should I say “smell the yarn”.

Gave these pillows an update with new hand sewn cases


My wardrobe is even slimming down.  I absolutely love and enjoy slowly decorating my shelves with sweaters, skirts, scarves, hats and mitts with projects that I have spun and knit up.  Calm and peace overflow from within and grace my household.

Yes, from little comes much.  I am a better business owner, mom, wife because I am choosing to take the time to slow things down and enjoy.

What do you do?

Happy Knitting,
