I decided to take all of the yarn I dyed last summer and use it to make a needle holder for my knitting needles. The funny thing is I crocheted it! I thought I would use up the different colors to create a needle holder. What I made was really very neat.
The colors were very complimentary to each other and quite pretty.
This picture below is a bit better/brighter. It seems as though the picture above ended up taking on a blue tinge. Not sure why, but it looks kind of neat!
What is so interesting as I go through this process is how much I feel I still need to learn. I think that I have achieved a certain level of competence, and instead I find out that I still have so much more to investigate.
Learning is like rowing upstream: not to advance is to drop back.
Just as an added side note: I once made this box for a class I was taking to become an elementary school teacher (it worked out really well as I sit here in my pajamas!) and I put a quote on there that has always meant a lot to me. I am not sure who it is attributed to but I would also like to put it here because it says a lot about who I am as a person and what happens once I attach myself to an idea: Education is not the filling of a pail but the lighting of a fire.
