It's back! I really enjoy this part of the blogging week. It reminds me to continue creating, when in the past, I'd put something aside and suddenly months had gone by without doing anything! I'm looking forward to discovering where creativity takes me and everyone else who participates this year.
My physical creative space is much tidier and more organised than usual, which is a lovely way to start the year. It still needs a dramatic makeover, but it's tidy enough now that I can see where I can make improvements! It also contains some magnificent giant lilies, which smell lovely and brighten things up enormously. They probably only have a couple more days in them, but they've been wonderful while they've lasted!
My mental creative space is also enjoying the space of a whole year ahead, and is brimming with ideas and enthusiasm! I'm spending most of my available creative time working on my first-ever lace knitting project: this lovely Lily of the Valley scarf from Knitted Lace of Estonia by Nancy Bush. It's a slow process, two steps forward and one step back, but I'm getting better at undoing lace, and I am actually making progress, just s-l-o-w-l-y!
I'm very much enjoying the process though. Mastering a new skill and working with some beautiful yarn (Jade Sapphire silk/cashmere - oh, so soft!) is very satisfying. And because there's a whole new year ahead of me, I feel like I have time to enjoy it!
