Weekly Photo Challenge: Create

The Daily Post posted this week’s photo challenge, which is create. Although they suggest posting a photo/photos of something you have created, I have gone a bit different direction with this one.

A yarn store Kat and I visited last summer, chock full of materials with which to create many beautiful, warm items. It is usually dangerous to let me loose in a store like this, but that day I behaved myself and purchased nothing. True, really true. I know, it’s hard to believe, but I do not lie.

The Kat’s creative urges tend to go in many directions, usually all at once. This is a picture of her supplies for last summer’s creations – it is hard to say what this year’s supplies might be. I suspect I’ll find out when she arrives on July 10.

Now that I have posted my photos, I can sit in my comfy chair and see what the rest of you are doing.

About Carol

I'm me - nothing unusual, just me. Widowed, 2 grown children who are my best friends, 1 dog, retired, loving being retired. I am woman, I am strong.

    Good interpretation of the challenge I’d say. Love the photo of the yarn store.

  3. I love this take on the theme, Carol! Colorful and creative–and what is more appropriate than a little artistic license?

  4. Oh, that wall of yarn is soooooo enticing — even to a non-knitter, like me.

  5. I’d love to see the Kat’s socks when they were done being ‘modified’. My kids like to redo their clothes and I love to see what they come up with. Love the feast of color–my neckties give the same feeling.

      Kat makes sock creatures out of the socks. At some point, I blogged about two she made for me, but I think that was before moved to WordPress so now it would be inaccessible.

    My mom would love to browse in that yarn store. Perhaps the options were too many for you to decide on what to get.

      Possibly too many options – more likely the fact that I had spent $25 on a salad spinner just a few minutes before and had not yet rationalized spending more money that day.

    I (still) don’t knit or crochet, and even I would have had a hard time leaving there empty-handed!

    Today I am beading a seed bead necklace or three, without any fancy stitches though, making four magic wands, a fairy light from solar back yard light, and hopefully starting that quilt. After I finish my book reading. This summer will be mandalas, zentangles, quilting and probably crochet. Unless I get an urge, which I do everytime we go to Michael’s.

    That first yarn photo is really cool. I used to knit. You–almost–inspire me to try again!

  15. I do not knit or crochet, and I am NEVER able to leave these shops empty handed. Maybe one day, with therapy perhaps?

  17. I love yarn stores. I knit and crochet but can never have enough yarn. It must be because they seem so fluffy and warm.
    Great entry … very nice
