I have decided that fiber arts are the way I need to go. It is visceral. I NEED to spin and knit. I NEED the feel of the natural fiber slipping through my fingers. With every fiber of my being, I NEED fiber.
Looking at pictures of fiber and yarn gets my creativity going. I pick patterns and then decide how to modify them to best fit my needs.
I would love to design in the future, but I feel I need more time with the fiber. Time to learn the ways each fiber is different, how they behave, and what works with what patterns.
I also want to dye fiber and yarn. I don't think I have an eye for color or how the dyed fiber will look spun or the yarn knit.
For now knitting and spinning will feed my soul.
