Chez Yarn Example:

I'd like to think my recent sock knitting represents a denial of established order, that it is my own choice that I have become a process knitter. Oh, yes, I am giddy with the knowledge that no more do myriad sock projects give me the heebie jeebies, leading to the restraint of one sock on the needles at any given time. I must needs acknowledge this didn't arise by conscious choice. My nature has evolved. Yes, I desired the change, but I a…



I don't need more yarn!!

So why did I just put like eleventy billion different yarns on my Loopy Ewe wishlist?

Okay, I've gotta step away from the innerwebs. Now. Pray for me.


I haven't polished off a project in eons. I wrapped up an earflap hat design this weekend, but the project really isn't done. It doesn't fit me, much less it's intended recipient, my hubby, so I didn't weave in the ends or add tassel pulls to the ear flaps.

The pattern I devised uses poached motifs from a handful of sources, including a subverted bastardization of the aspen tree motif on the ear flaps. Heheheh.

Now that I gained a bit of perspective on my particular brand of heroin crazy, it's obvious that my creative energy is dysfunctional at least 50% of the time. When it's not working a large ball of electrostatic tension builds in my chest, shoulders and neck. I can't think straight and my mind and body crave a place where all my senses are suspended. For many years I interpreted this love of sensory deprivation as an indication of my being an Aspie.

Strictly speaking I was wrong; I'm not an Aspie. I just experience things like they do. A lot.

Well, this whole stranded knitting obsession has been taking a toll on me. LOL. Fer feck sake, you'd think I was homeless and starving, I get so twisted and turned 1. Each day I'm trying…
