No, I haven't parted ways with consensual reality. No, it's not a typo.
Back at the end of 2012 I listed some goals for 2013. One of them was to learn Brioche Knitting. I bought Nancy Marchant's book. I enrolled in a Craftsy course. But no Brioche. Not in 2013. Not in 2014. Oh, sorry, you mean I actually have to pick up needles and yarn and do something?
It's a pattern. My shelves are heaped with instructional materials. My devices are stuffed with educational apps. Let's not talk about the oddball devices I've stockpiled: the pom-pom maker, the tiny loom, the I-cord spool, the jewelry pliers. I could start a craft store with the supplies in my closet.
When it came time to think about what I wanted to learn in 2015, I didn't have to waste an iota of brain power. I had all these perfectly good resolutions left over from previous year-end dreaming, and recycling is a good idea, right?
So I looked up my Craftsy password, grabbed yarn and needles, and gave it a go. Progress to date: a bit more than halfway through the sample swatch in Lesson 1. That wasn't so hard now, was it? Anyone else with a recycled resolution?
