The other side
I thought I'd show the "right" side of this piece. It is very slow going still. But what I find so curious is that seeing my work as an unmoving and untouchable image startles me. Is that mine? Boy, it looks better here than in the hand. What is that disassociation that takes place between a thing in hand and the thing observed? What happens when you return to a piece of work whether knitted, written, painted, or stitched and take it up again? I think it gets better, but that's because I am easily distracted and I temporarily abandon a project when I feel my interest wane. Often when I reconnect I can finish with greater energy and determination.
