Staying in my pajamas knitting and browsing through my library of knitting books and patterns gives me an opportunity to remove myself from the chaos of everyday. A visual world of stitches, creating dimension, exercising two of my senses. The tactile experience and the act of seeing something pleasing to my personality of design, elevates my serotonin level like savoring a piece of Sees Candy.
I dusted off the cover of my copy of Rowan Pattern Book, Rowan Denim People, by Rowan and discovered a technique I forgot about.
I trekked to my local fabric/craft store (yes, I changed into street clothes) and purchased a ball of Lily Sugar ‘n Cream color 18114 Indigo. Using bleach as a medium made me a little cautious, but I “threw caution to the wind” and began to think about Jackson Pollock and his drip paintings. Intentionally splattering bleach all over a knitted piece was so liberating! Thank you Jackson Pollock http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jackson_Pollock.
