After taking a few months off, I’m back in the UK and ready to start knitting and blogging regularly again.
Finishing my final project towards my MA at the end of last year was a lot of hard work, at the end of a very long and hard year of work! I needed to take some time off to relax, to rest and to rejuvenate so I can continue to be creative and pursue this new career and lifestyle I’m cultivating.
I have been knitting, although this is for more therapeutic purposes. To me, knitting is a bit like meditation… the repetition of creating stitch after stitch helps to clear my mind and focus it. The items I’ve been creating have mostly been stash busters*, with the process of creating being more important than the final design. Now, I’m looking forward to the exhibitions I’ve got coming up, and creating some new pieces.
*Stash busters are items created using yarn in your “stash”; you generally bought the yarn on a whim or for a project that is no longer going ahead.
