This used to be distracting, but now I find it amazing. Such thinks make me look into the inter web and poke around, find things that inspire me and materials to use.
FOR EXAMPLE - because everyone likes an example.....this blog.
Now - I should explain (even though I did it in the side bar).... that I, Donyale, am Moggy and Me. And Loom and Arty.
I used to knit wool
I used to spin yarn
I used to dye yarn
I used to weave yarn
I used to blog
I even designed a few patterns
I stopped knitting wool
I stopped dyeing yarn
I stopped blogging
I joined Ravelry
I joined Facebook (as Moggy and Me)
I have found that....
I still spin
I still poke around on Ravelry
I don't knit (at the moment) or dye yarns
BUT MOST OF ALL
I'm not a weaving expert in any sense. Totally self taught and purely experimental.
I certainly don't fit into the mould of a 'traditional' weaver, (their skills and knowledge is amazing), but along the way I have developed my own style, and fallen in love with the Saori philosophy of creating things. (I've added a link if you would like to have a look).
And so over time I've become a bit torn.
Moggy and Me is still me.....the 'brand' if you like....but Loom and Arty is where my head and heart is.
And as such this is where I plan on documenting my thinking process. The creative process. The photos etc. I will just like on Facebook when I have put up a new post.
I would love you to say hi and leave thoughts and comments.
Hope you enjoy the journey.
