When nothing much else takes my fancy, there always seems to be some ball winding to do. Did I say how much i'm loving the vintage Singer ball winder I found at the op-shop? It's a real time saver! Although if anyone knows of someone who makes homemade swifts, please please send me their contact details (or vice-versa)! I would love to buy a homemade swift and absolutely balk at the idea of paying for a mass produced one.
In the meantime, the chairs do a satisfactory job, which includes an upper body workout at the same time, complete with flailing arms ;)
Balls wound on the winder can have their yarn pulled straight from the centre thus eliminating 'roll away ball syndrome'. Nice for when you're in the company of strangers and don't want to be groping around their ankles for your cheeky ball of wool that has escaped...yet again! I'm sure I've mentioned this before but it's so true!
I love walking into the craft room and just staring at the works in progress..and those no longer in progress. It's the best remedy for a less than motivating start to the week..
Pondering the options is always fun..I could get lost for hours staring at vintage patterns and dreaming up possibilities. Ahh, possibilities, now there's an inspiring word, wouldn't you say?
Handspun yarn hanging up to dry is always offers a bit of inspiration - what to make, to dye or not to dye, to knit ..or crochet? Again, the possibilities! You see?
So..tell me, how do you revive your inspiration when it's lacking? Clean the house? Read a book? Get out? Or maybe just ride that wave until it passes?
