Welcome to My World

"Sharing what you have is more important than what you have."
- Albert M. Wells

So...do you really want to see what I have?

I have the beginnings of a Poinsettia scarf.

ONLY the beginnings.

No middle.

Just muddle.

and a picture

But hey! The border looks good...

Know what else I have?

I have a bunch of failed designs - too open - too busy - too whatever...

I love the yarn.

I love the gold beads with little red flowers.

I'm not really a hard person to please. But I know when it's right. There's this little subliminal "click" inside when the yarn finds what it wants to be. And I can't wait to knit more on it.

Poinsettia just isn't there yet.


But I love the border; see the little Christmas trees with their golden garlands?

What else do I have?

I have a headache. Up till 2:00 this morning before conceding defeat.

I have a strong cup of coffee. Did I mention I was up till 2:00?

I have a bunch of frogged seasilk.

But I also have another idea...

Wow those beads are freaking amazing and the yarn with the tree's & garland yummy!The "muddle" is looking pretty fabulous to me. You'll find the "click" when its ready to show itself. I find the "design" process fascinating because I know you put so much love and attention to your designs and it makes them so enjoyable to knit. =) hugs, Megan

The christmas trees are great with their garlands! It'll come. The yarn is gorgeous.

I can't wait to see the other idea! Those beads look fantastic against the sea silk. Sorry you are having some difficulties with this pattern, but it allows us readers to see the process. I hope you'll continue to post a little at a time, so we can see the project as it unfolds.
