  1. I went right to “create more than you consume”. How many of us comb through magazines, websites only to say, “Oh I should make that, do that….” And set a bookmark? Often big projects that take a lot of planning, materials and time. What I love about knitting is the satisfaction of starting a project and sometimes finishing it that day (hats, mitts). For me it is a flexible craft. Lots of choices but not so much I become overwhelmed and never start.
    Yesterday’s posts got me going on a basic cardigan. Not too complicated, not too expensive, but excited to create.
