Comfortable With Yarn Chicken
I’ve gotten to a stage in my yarn-work where it wouldn’t bother me to rip out hours of work. So, I’m quite comfortable with yarn chicken.
Even With A Large Cone – I Still Need To Be Comfortable With Yarn Chicken
My current project started with a ridiculously large cone of Rowan California Cotton. I couldn’t imagine that I’d ever NOT have enough yarn for this project.
But as I’ve progressed, the Tunisian crochet mesh stitch seems to be eating up the yarn quite quickly. And so now I’m wondering if I’ll have enough.
Immediately, I thought of different ways I could extend the yarn. Adding a wide stripe of color. Starting to mix in a different shade of California Cotton I have in stash. Revising the design so it takes up less yarn.
But I also thought, “What’s the worst…I have to rip out the entire garment?” And the thought wasn’t horrifying or worrying. It wasn’t even mildly anxiety-inducing.
I’m starting to get relaxed in my old age.
I’m also about to start shaping the fabric for this project. And I’m honestly not sure I’m planning it correctly. The whole design idea might not really work.
Here’s how I see it. I’ve learned a new stitch pattern. I’ve really enjoyed the process of working this fabric. The whole idea of designing on the hook is enjoyable to me…even the unknown parts I haven’t thought through very much in my head.
I like where I am in my life these days…very relaxed.
Current Tunisian Crochet
With the weekend, I intended to get a bit more finished on this garment.
Friday night, there was an event I had forgotten about, so it kept me from progressing as much as I might have. But I am on the verge of starting to add shaping. You may even be able to figure out what this will be soon.
