I am proud of this weird yarn patch

fullsizerenderI am teaching myself to weave. I’m not sure why, but I’m filled with inspiration and motivation to learn this skill and use it to make beautiful and/or functional woven things for myself and others.

At first, I thought, “Chill, this is gonna be just like calligraphy and you’re gonna get in over your head.”

And then I thought, “But it’s just yarn. There’s no ink or digitization or business involved. You want to do it. Just do it.”

And this is my first woven thing. This lop-sided, oddly colored, patchy little rag is hanging on my wall because I am proud of it. And I definitely wrote an entire page of notes on how to not do things the next time around. That’s how you learn, right?
