It was wonderful for me to try something new!
Hooked in four days there are things I would change now as there always are when I get some distance from a project. Strangely though I'm quite a respecter of "that's a record of what you did then", apply what you've learned through that project to the next one.
Building blocks of learning, that's a good way to become better at what you do. Making yourself a foundation of tools and skills,using what you've learned up to the point you're at now, that creates more of you in what you make.
Learning about dip dyeing and its application early in my hooking life was a keen interest.
Once I knew how to both dye them and apply them I rapidly realized their stiffness wasn't working for me. I longed to have related colour transitions but I wanted more control of them, and sometimes I required a more subtle interplay of colour than dip dyes provide.
I would never have found the many ways I have to transition colours one from the other if I hadn't followed my head and satisfied my curiosity about dip dyes and I listened to my heart when it craved more even though it was enough for others.
All the knowledge I possess everyone else can acquire, but my heart is all my own.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
