Life Interrupted ...

... or was last week a period of Art Interrupted?

I did "art" every day since last week, 
but life was too busy to document the process.
Or should I say: progress.

I'm definitely becoming a knitter! And I love the process ... and the progress.
I've downloaded my next project from Ravelry.com.
I found this project by searching for patterns using the yarn I purchased a couple of weeks ago.
I love Ravelry ... it's one of the more addicting sites I visit.
It's a lens into eternity because it would take an eternity to do everything I've marked as "favorite" on the site!
And to think I've barely scratched the surface.

Anyhow, this is where I get to bore show you my progress:

"Basket Weave"
This is my homework for my Beginning to Knit class.
Tonight I will learn cables.

Progress on the cowl I'm making just for fun.
And practice. But really, this feels more like fun than practice.

So whether life interrupts art, or art interrupts life,
I figure it's all a matter of personal interpretation.
I would love to have been able to post every day
about the things I make and create everyday,
but as much as I love this blogging experience
and the participating in Art Every Day Month Challenge
I also love giving my attention to all the other areas of life,
of which there are many, in all our lives.

My projects are calling ...

Wow, you're really running away with this! Kudos!

I'm slightly envious, being all thumbs when it comes to knitting and/or crochet.

Your stitches are beautifully done, very even. I would say you are a knitter, not just becoming one. Knitting is so much fun. Keep practicing and enjoy yourself.

sometimes it's hard to do it all in one day. I really like your basket weave pattern, so pretty.

Isn't it great when you realize that even the most complex knitting is just...knits and purls. Sometimes several together, sometimes in the wrong order (happy cabling tonight!) and sometimes just plain skipping them. But always back to the same basic motions. I just find that fascinating. Don't you love how calming knitting is?
