i know you have to think i have forgotten all my knitting/crocheting friends.
not true. most of the people i have been talking about are knitters/crocheters who have other interests similar to mine. i think knitting and photography and art are all of a similar nature. we see colors that can work together, blend into one another or contrast against each other. i think that is why many of us get into dying yarn. somehow, we must translate colors we see onto blank yarn. lights and darks and shades and hues.
so many textures. we see textures. now that is one of the things that turns us into yarnaholics (see my portrait). textures turn us into knitters. we want to feel the yarn move thru our fingers and see/touch the resulting fabric. we have to make patterns. and then some of us are compelled to learn to spin ... how else will we get the yarn we want?
if you are not a knitter or crocheter, i hope this draws you into this wonder craft(s).
