Being Creative.

This wonderful Saturday morning (and the rest of the day, hopefully) is dedicated to creativity.  Creating wearable art is interesting because, really, can’t anything be art?  Art is in the eye of the beholder, right?

One of my most favorite things to do is spin my own yarn.  Seldom do I actually get to use it in a knitting project.  The process of dyeing and spinning certainly is wonderful.  Seeing someone else’s creation using my creation is a gratifying experience.  Below is an example of one of my most popular colorways, Panorama.  First, as roving, then as yarn.  Just gorgeous, isn’t it.  You can find it at my fiber-dedicated Etsy shop, Dye2Spin

After this beautiful Merino 64s Roving is given a whirl throught the old Ashford Traditional, it looks like the hand-spun goodness below.

About craftcafedfw

Ashley is an elementary school teacher in the Fort Worth area who has a vision and mission to bring community members together in the name of arts, crafts, and the greater good. I am in the process of building up the name of Craft Cafe as not only a place where crafters meet to enjoy themselves as they work, but as a community outreach movement to improve the lives of others, namely children, in a variety of ways. Although the idea for Craft Cafe is as new as a spring chick, Ashley is deeply committed to the mission of providing enriching opportunities for children and adults through the arts, crafting, education, and the environment.
