My brain is currently obsessing over spirals and mandalas. Yesterday I was happily working on my rainbow stripes granny blanket and the creative side of my brain took over and started designing spirals and mandalas. I literally had to drop my current project, waddle inside, get a pencil and start sketching. Five minutes later I had some yarn and another hook in my hand and started crafting. I find this frustrating as I don’t like having more then one craft project on the go. I like to finish what I make and then move on.
Not happy with the consistancy of the joins or flow of the square, I’ve started another mandala, referencing notes I jotted down yesterday.
I know I should be enjoying the creative process, but in honesty its starting to drive me batshit crazy. I have bass lines, lyrics and crochet projects all screaming out for attention. I am eternally greatful for my husband who listens to me and points out that I should have a star chart that monitors my progress. I looked at him like he was crazy and blurted out “but that’s what ravelry is for!” plus ravelry is only for crochet and knitting not music etc.
