You see, I wanted to learn something new so I decided to attempt charted color work. I have never done it - knit or crochet - so this was an adventure. I grabbed my graph paper notebook that I purchased several months for exactly this and sat down. Disappointed that I totally forgot to pick up colored pencils, I grabbed a pen and simply shaded in the squares where I thought the color would go. Pleased with my new graph, I grabbed two colors from my stash and set to work.
|The inside looked good, the outside was almost recognizable as snowflake...|
|Definite Rorschach test result but now it can be a game AND a bag that holds ornaments.|
On the plus side, I am attempting the chart again but this time I am knitting it up as a gift card holder. There are a few issues here as well but I'm not going to beat myself up over them. I'm learning and when you're learning, everything is positive... even the creatively rogue moments. See, I don't make mistakes when I'm creating... I simply go rogue... a lot.
|Bet y'all forgot I knew how to knit... yeah, for a few minutes there, I did too!|
Celebrate the efforts - regardless of the outcome. Things will not always turn out as you envision them but as long as you continue to try, they have a better chance of success than if you don't even start.
