All last week, while studiously working on my knitting, I thought about embroidery. I have several pieces on my walls and have ideas for more. So many more. I was thinking about pulling out all my embroidery books today just for fun. I cannot imagine not being deeply inspired by Trish Burr's intensity and sure hand in her lovely work (See her website too) or the delicate touch of Kazuko Aoki .
I think that is what I am looking for today. Inspiration. I am looking to go on a journey in my head rather than sitting stuck in what I am doing. I may not be much of a real world traveler, but I go miles, many, many miles, while my hands are busy.
The vest is in the middle of the body and is very back and forth and mindless. I am trying not to think of knitting other things so I can stay happily focussed and busy knitting this project but I still crave the inspiration of the journey to something else, somewhere else.
