Remember how in my last post I said I was craving color? Well, it's pouring out of me, but not through the paint brush (yet), but through my crochet hook.
I'm in a flower frenzy and I can't stop!! Nor do I really want to...
All of these flowers laying around, made me think I needed to reopen my Etsy shop, so I started taking pictures of all my knitted and crocheted creations I had made in the last few months.
I couldn't believe how much there was! Working with my hands like that calms me, but strangely enough the things I make are rarely for me.
I love making scarves, yet I hardly ever wear any myself.
I love knitting hats, yet again - I'm not usually a hat person.
And I love crocheting embellishments like the colorful flowers above, yet I wouldn't use them in anything I make - they bring me joy but are just not my style.
Strange, isn't it?
So, because I want to keep making things, I reopened my Etsy shop a couple of days ago and already sold one of my favorite scarves - a deep turquoise one knitted entirely of recycled sari silk yarn. It was stunning, even if I say so myself!
I've been combining fun yarns and trying new patterns - all for the sheer joy of making things.

Hopefully, soon I will get that same color explosion as I get back to my studio and one of my portraits. I have missed them!!
