Last year it was Loopies! They were all the rage for a time, but now....not so much. Then I developed the Flowery Neck Gardens - an initial flurry of interest, but that too has waned. I'm trying to make some lightweight shawls for Spring and Summer wear, but they have not sold well. Most recently, I've been working on a remake of a shawl I have myself, only this new one will surely be ripped out by tomorrow. It's just not working out right.
So....I'm stumped! I'm stuck! I'm discouraged! Some sincere people on facebook offered suggestions to renew both my interest and my creative juices. I so appreciate their attempts to resolve my issues, but alas.....so far.....NOTHING!
I've joined Jane Thornley's Inspired Knitters group and have received beautifully written patterns accompanied by amazing narrative that should inspire even the stuckest of fiber artists. I'm stuck because I have a stash that won't quit, and amongst the hundreds of skeins/partial skeins I have in my studio, I don't have the silk and other ribbons that take one of her pieces from the mundane to the sublime. Bummer! That never stopped me before, but...........! ARGHHHHHHHHH!
Any and all ideas, tips, strategies, suggestions, recommendations will be greatly appreciated!
