Spirals and Mandalas… Oh My!

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.

Anyway here is what i’m working on in all its messy unfinished glory

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.

  1. Lovely greeeeeennnns – my fave… (I’m beginning to think I must learn to crochet when I see things like that mandala’s interplay of colours – hmm.)

    • Green is my favourite colour too! ❤ I would definately recommend learning how to crochet, it is very relaxing and quiet lovely to see all the colours interplay with each other.
