I have been suffering from a creative block as of late. It seems to hit me every year around Christmas, such an inopportune time at that.
I stop wanting to design and start wanting to make something that I can't zombie out and create without thinking. This year I chose blankets. I love the repetition and with the weather changing, I like to get snuggly under a blanket.
I'm almost done with a ripple afghan. I have been trying to do some stash busting since a lot of my yarn is getting discontinued. Here's a progress pic…
I'm especially heartbroken over the slow discontinuing of Wool-Ease. It's my favorite yarn for amigurumi making…now at least half the best colors are gone and I don't know if they're coming back. I think that is contributing to my block, I have no inpiration…colors and yarn are often my catalyst.
So, I am looking for a new yarn…I like wool/acrylic blends with a medium to light worsted weight. Doesn't have to be widely available…if I can order it online, I'll be happy. Great colors are a must! Going on a google hunt too. If I find one, I'll be sure to tell you guys about it.
I'm not a fan of Vanna's Choice. The colors are good! But it's 100% acrylic and the weight is heavier…both bad.
Oh well, opefully, I'll get back in the swing of things soon. I have two shows in the next month…so I need something to sell! LOL.
