My knitting, last year, suffered from a lack of
To do that, I need goal # 2. Get inspired. And to do that, I turn to goal #3. Go back to Elizabeth Zimmermann. Going backwards to go forwards, it might seem. But I think it will work. I have three unfinished sweaters on my shelf right now. Patterns and designs from un-Elizabeth sources. They are not working out. They are not pleasing me. They are not inspiring me. They are not likely to get finished any time soon. So back to basics for 2014.
Stick with what Elizabeth has taught me. Perhaps make her designs more my own, by adding what I think makes the piece more a garment 'du jour', but the basics will be Elizabeth's.
To make matters worse, my lack of output seems magnified because sometime during 2013, the section of blogger that allows me (well - not me at the moment) to upload data regarding finished objects, has failed to work for me. Reading my list of FOs for 2013, you will see nothing has been posted there for months. Goal #5 - fix that problem.
Thinking about it, I expect 2014 to be a great year. More of the same, same which will be great. But also more of the different, different. The different, different should enhance the same, same and won't that be great?
Happy New Year and a wonderful year of yarny loveliness to you all.
