This is the start of my 5th project in a week, week and a half.
a spring scarf with light weight cotton yarn on a 4mm hook.
I am a bit compulsive with this...I find with the attention and constant hands in motion, that my thoughts are at rest and listening with intent is improved. Mostly I'm here at the desk, in front of the computer, listening to a podcast, or the news on TV, or music. (Moth Radio Hour and Democracy Now are the podcast and Valerie June is the songstress). And it dawned on me while listening to MSNBC why I've decreased following the Mon-Friday evening shows...The shows spend too damn much time keeping me informed of the so-called conservative that they are indeed giving them way much more air time and coverage then they really need. Don't get me wrong, I believe in knowing what the enemy is up to, but the coverage doesn't go in depth of what so-called liberals or progressive movements or thoughts actually stand for. The weekend shows do most of this with round table discussions with various povs by people who are self-respecting, intelligent on subject matter by way of study and/or activism...the weekend news and information is more civil in tone and engages me as if I'm in conversation.
Before this need to rest began, I did bring the projector home for the purpose of enlarging the Sula inspired quilt on a white vintage table cloth. But where I put it down, it still sits. To paraphrase artist Kevin Cole "making good art is about making a series of intelligent decisions". To enlarge the quilt would require intelligent decisions and a "flow" that I can't muster. The crochet patterns and the counting, the either it is right or wrong that goes along with it, is a strong branch to make my cocoon right about now.
Peace, *title is reference to what song by which artist?
