yarn as art

Wednesday, May 19, 2021

For today's WIP, I'd like to mention a project that was on my mind for a few months.  I guess it was a mental WIP that accelerated into a FO in about 30 minutes.  


The materials sat on the floor for the entire time.  I'm serious.  I don't know what kept me from diving into this project.  Fear of messing up?  I don't think that's possible.  
I had this blank wall in my corner of the office that needed something desperately.  My friend, Christina, had the most fabulous idea.  You see, Christina isn't a knitter, but she is an artist.  And she just happens to love yarn.  I mean, really love yarn.  The colors, the texture, the feel of it in her hands.  She thinks a skein of yarn is is a work of art in itself.  And, it truly is.  
One day, Christina brought over these wood plate racks from Bed, Bath and Beyond.  Ours was going out of business.  (I found similar ones here.) 
Christina also purchased this Velcro tape and explained her vision.  "Attach these to the back of the plate racks, attach the plate rack to the wall, display that gorgeous yarn.  Hang them horizontal.  Hang them vertical.  Attach your skeins.  Attach your cakes.  Attach balls.  Just play and have fun." 
I measured the wall and tried to lay it out on the floor so that I could come up with a little bit of a plan.  In the end, I just dove in feet first.  It was easier that way.  (You can see the time lapse video of this over on Instagram.)

I couldn't be more pleased with the result.  I mean it's a wall of pure happiness. For the first few days, I would just head back to the office whenever I thought of it.  Just to get some happy.
And the best thing?  I can change it out with the season.  Autumnal colors in the fall.  Shades of red and green for the holidays.  A wall of white in the winter.  The possibilities are endless.  And If I ever get tired of all of it?  I won't even need to repair holes because there aren't any nails in the wall.  
My friend, Christina, is a genius!  ๐Ÿงก

  6. Really works" I can’t believe" Dr Unity is real love spell caster..
    I just got my husband back through the help of genuine love spell caster dr unity. My name is Emily Sarah am from Tx,USA. My husband left me for another woman, This was just 3 years of our marriage. The most painful thing is that I was pregnant with our second baby. I wanted him back. I did everything within my reach to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so badly because of the love I had for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back , I had no choice than to try it. I messaged the spell caster called dr unity, and he assured me there was no problem and that everything will be okay before 11 hours. He cast the spell and surprisingly 11 hours later my husband called me. I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that had happened He wanted me to return to him. He also said he loved me so much. I was so happy and went to him that was how we started living together happily again.thanks to dr unity . if you are here and your Lover is turning you down, or your husband moved to another woman, do not cry anymore, contact Dr.Unity for help now..Here his contact..WhatsApp him: +2348055361568 ,
